Should I perservere with my IT degree?

A year and a half ago, stuck in what I thought was a dead-end job, I decided to do a degree in computing/IT with the Open University. Six months later, I landed a job as a Test Analyst in the IT department of the company I was working for. I now have an actual career. I've been continuing with the degree, but I'm finding bits of it very dull and it's difficult to get motivated. Should I keep going? [more inside]

Finish my engineering degree? Or switch to I.T.?

I've decided I have more of an interest in computer software than mechanical machines, so I'm contemplating switching to a lesser Bachelor of I.T. from my Bachelor of Engineering degree, even though they would both take the same amount of time to finish. [more inside]

is it too late for a 30yr old to get a degree?

I want to get back to school and get a degree to find a better job but I am already 30. Is it too old to try for a degree? my interests are IT and finance, though IT is much more easier for me. Does anyone know the IT market in British Columbia? I don't want to be IT monkey forever and I would like to move up to some manger role in the future. Also, how do employers see hiring a mid 30s with a degree compared to all the mid 20s that are coming out of school these days? I am not sure how or what path I should take but I just know I need more education to get a better paying job.

Is getting an MBA a good investment?

Is an MBA worth getting? I've seen a lot of talk to the contrary lately, and most of the MBAs that I know don't seem to be doing work now that particularly requires an MBA, so I'm wondering if it's just a waste of time and money compared to just gaining more work experience? I was thinking of getting an MBA as a way to shift into less pure-IT related work, since I can't seem to get rehired as a developer after a long absence.
