You mention you have a sales/sales management background. If this is something that you're interested in still, then there are always sales jobs available. To "tick the box" for job opportunities I'd get the fastest degree possible, and if you're a good tester, get a general business-type degree from Excelsior, TESC or COSC. If you have $6-7k to invest and the time you can get your undergrad done from scratch in 6-9 months easily. Your experience will trump any degree, and you can always pursue a MBA or MIS degree. If you want to get out of sales, or change industries, then be prepared to rebuild your career. In this case, the degree choice will matter more, and I see that others have recommended finance or accounting degrees, which can provide a decent living in the $80-100K range within a year. Unless you can find a good way to transition to IT (perhaps in a sales capacity for a company that has ties to finance), I don't think an IT degree will get you anywhere fast. You're mid-career now and without hands-on or managerial experience in this area you wouldn't get more than an entry-level position that pays $30-40K. IT is no longer as desirable as it was 10 years ago, with many positions being outsourced, offshored or automated.
