    Hi everyone :)
    I ve been thinking about this question for months, reading and researching. I still cant come to the final decision.
    Does one go for degree in Business with pursuing CPA, CMA , CFA certifications in the future ? Or is it more beneficial to obtain degree in IT and follow IT certifications with pursuing Master's in the future?
    I am in the middle of my life and I can fully invest in pursing only one path.
    Which path does have more opportunities and benefits ?
    I know there are plenty of intelligent and experienced members here. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Which is your preference? If you're truly honest with yourself and not looking at it through rosy-coloured glasses. You also need to pick which realm within IT you want to go - there are numerous. CyberSec, SW Dev, frontend/backend web, forensics, networking, etc...

    I've struggled - should I stay in IT (Forensics) or switch to Psychology since I've been in IT for nearly 30 years. Psychology was an interest that I thought for sure I'd want to pursue - and I enrolled in a Masters and took some courses that I quite enjoyed, but the reality was that it was an interest. My passion is in IT... after nearly 30 years I still love computers and am still excited to learn new things. I realized that when I was honest with myself, I knew that I love IT too much to walk away from it.

    One can combine both worlds with a degree such as an MBA in IT.

    Masters in Information Systems Management? Maybe this one is not as attractive as it used to be.
