I've been a nurse for about 6 years and am looking to change careers. What would be more advantageous for someone trying to change fields into IS: an MBA in IS from University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, or an MIS from University of Illinois at Springfield? As far as the degrees are concerned, both are AACSB accredited. However, I have zero experience and no certifications whatsoever. On one hand, it seems that the MIS from UIS would prepare me better technically, thus increasing the likelyhood of landing a job in my targeted field of IS, but would it limit my upward mobility? I don't know much about MIS grads, but I've heard that some MIS grads just work at help desks. Not my cup of tea. On the other hand, the MBA in IS would open a broader range of doors, and I'd have more upward mobility, but would the IS concentration even be enough to go into IS? I'm totally new to the field so any input and advice would be greatly appreciated.
