Hello to everyone! I'm looking forward to starting back to school in the fall. I've been out for about 12 years - went to 2 community colleges straight out of high school and didn't exactly thrive in it at that point in my life, and went straight into IT where I found a good match for my skills. I'm trying to figure out now what my best options are, the credits I have previously I'm sure are no good, but my gpa was awful, so I'm thinking for the most part I'm looking at starting from scratch at a local community college for cost and also to build a few semesters of good grades before looking at where I want to go from there. The trouble is I don't want to 'waste' time on classes that won't transfer, and I don't want to spend time taking classes that will be a rehash of what I've learned doing IT work for the last 12 or so years. I feel that I need the degree to push me to the next phase of my career. I do have those 12 years of experience in IT, I've worked my way up to a technical lead of 8 people doing SA/High Impact project work. My goal though is to move to an IT manager or Director position in a mid size company. To land that kind of position, I think a bare minimum is a Bachelor's degree w/ my experience, if not a Master's. Does anyone have any suggestions on an IT track that wouldn't focus so much on the technical side? I'm considering a general business administration track or IT management, but again, a significant chunk of the IT management courses seem like a rehash of what I've already proved I can do... Any feedback or suggestions would be hugely helpful. I'm just looking again and WOW there are a lot of options. Cost is a significant factor, as is flexibility as I have a family with 2 great kids and another on the way that I really like to spend at least SOME time with. All in all, I can't wait to get started!
