A Personal Story of Fusing Career Paths

So I have decided to go back for a third Masters degree. Since my company pays for it, I am thinking why not? The degree is 100% online and is called “Master of Science in Interactive Communications and Media” (ICM for short). I am currently progressing steadily in my career as a business intelligence manager, however adding to one’s repertoire can never hurt. What’s interesting about this new degree are some of the courses that have to be taken including:
  • Intro to the Study of Interactive Communications
  • Visual Aesthetics
  • Media Imaging and Sound Design
  • Game Development and Game Theory
  • Writing for Interactive Media
  • Interactive Development
  • Information Animation
  • Media Law
I guess what I am getting at is questioning whether or not I am supplementing a business intelligence career with this type of academics, or taking a new fork in the road. I realize that with these skills, that my career could potentially take a left turn someday. But can you think of any ways that these types of courses can be applied to current and specific business intelligence ideas and theories?
