Should I seek a 2nd Bachelors in IT/IS?

By bludawg14 ·
I am currently working as a network technician with about 5 years of experience. I have an A+ Certification and am taking my Network+ at the end of this month. I am putting myself on track to be a network administrator within the next two years. However, I received a BA in Psychology and started out in social services then switched to IT. I started a MA in IT Mgmt, but am wondering if a bachelors in IT/IS would be more beneficial. I have researched plenty of network admin job postings with most asking for experience, certs, and a BA/BS in IT/IS/CS. Is getting a bachelors rather than a masters at this point in my career more beneficial?

If the IT/IS BA or BS would help learning-wise, get it.

Otherwise, get the MA and don't worry about it. If you know your stuff, the BA or BS won't mean squat. The MA will mean more to moving up the ladder faster.
