I have decided to go back to school and get my bachelor's degree. I currenly have an AAS in Drafting/Design coupled with 13+ yrs experience in various engineering fields. I'm trying to decide between Project Mgt and an MIS degree. My goal is to get a degree that helps prepare me for mgt jobs in the engineering field,as well as open some doors for some possible IT jobs. All jobs in the drafting/engineering arena are construction dependent, and I am hoping to leverage myself to where I won't have to work at afast food place because the economy is so bad. Any advice will be helpful. THANKS cool

Both degrees will be great for what you are trying to get into. A degree in project management will open up the door for possible consulting jobs. MIS will also be helpful to get into the field but, project management will be more beneficial if you want to get into consulting. Just something to think about! Good luck!
