Ask yourself if you want to be in the technical career path or the managerial career path?

If you are interested in "technical management" then the MS in Information Systems or Information Technology would be appropriate.

If you are interested in non-technical management, such as accounting, marketing or running your own business, then the MBA with specialization in Information Technology would be appropriate.
