As well as intellectually equip people to create even bigger ones :firedevil:
Let’s get back on track here and not undermine successes. CONGRATULATIONS!
Just a quick clarification on CS50 counting for the Harvard ALM in IT. Harvard has 4 concentrations within the ALM in IT:
Information Management Systems
Mathematics and Computation
Digital Media and Instructional Design
Of the 4 concentrations, CS50 (it is called CSCI E-52 in the Extension School) ONLY counts for the Digital Media and Instructional Design concentration. This makes sense, considering that folks in that concentration are the only students that are not assumed to have prior programming experience.
Ryoder. You are truly an inspiration to us all. 9 months is unbelieveable. I am actually on a pace for a 10 month MBA with a state school, but I don't really want to talk about it until it is done. I could have done it in 6 months, if they would have allowed me to take the capstone concurrently with finance and accounting. Many have quit their jobs, spent $100k tuition and gave up a few hundred thousand in salary in order to do the MBA. I will do mine in 10 months for less than $10k with a RA school. The ROI was there for me.
Explain your stats, I think you might be off base. However, I would like to hear more opinions.
As a very broad generalization, I agree with RFValve. But I think it's a topic best argued elsewhere.
There are few research studies in this area. However, you can take it from someone that has been teaching IT during more than 12 years at different levels and someone that has worked in the industry even more years.
For IT, the BS is pretty much the terminal degree.
I think the words "broad generalization" describe this as well.
I opened up another thread for this conversation over in the IT degrees sub-forum.
There are many MS degrees in IT but most of these directed towards non IT graduates wanting an IT qualification. This is the case of the MBA in Computer Science from NCU,
