I would like to get some opinions on which study path is more beneficial.

Bachelor Business with a major in Information Technology at the Open Polytechnic. Studying extramural

or

Bachelor Information technology at Weltec on campus.

Goal is to eventually move into IT project management

Moving from self employed electrician. Have A+ and Network +. Going for MCSA soon

If you are keen on IT then do the Bachelor Information technology rather than business with IT major, you will spend most of your time studying business otherwise.

although then you're in trouble if you work for ten years in IT and want to move into business/management.  I think it's good to have a business qualification.  if you're majoring in IT then surely a big chunk of your degree will be IT itself.

Massey University also offer a Bachelor of Information Sciences degree which could be another option.  This can be done either extramurally (through Palm North) or on any of the campuses.

Having just completed this programme this year extramurally, I can say the campus-based programme does look better (esp. in Wgtn and Akl) but it all depends on your situation.  You could even do a mix.

My BInfSci programme was quite good in that it offered flexibility with the papers i.e. there are an number of electives for which I did business papers.
