Part-time PH.D in computer science or MBA/mgnt or CCIEs/JNCIEs?

Hi Guys, Hope you all doing well healthily ! I am gonna need your help advising me your views/thoughts/experience on my long term confusion. As the title says straightforward question whether Part-time PH.D or MBA is better ? Background: I GOT YOU !! I understand that you would definitely need a little background info of mine in order throw your views :) here you go, I am CCIE R&S certified Sr.Network Engineer working for World's top web based company having close to 8yrs of exp. I am little confused of what next in my career to plan? The company I am working with is always inspiring me to get into core technical area of programming/scripting/automation stuffs. My goal is to be an Entrepreneur or core value addition to the company as part of in research or attain senior most management position in the end . These are the options that are running in mind to choose with.. 1. Since I am already CCIE in R&S, I have resources to prepare for CCIE SP but my feeling is that, I never had a strong satisfaction in pursuing the certifications like CCIE, CCDE after my first CCIE RS because I feel that there isn't any innovative/creative work I do, it's just certification game to get some good job with an excellent pay cheque. I just don't want to follow what others have already discovered/made ! I don't want to spend the rest of my life in just doing certifications after certifications just for pride or go as consultant or designing since that doesn't lead me to my ultimate goal. I want to create things, come up with my own idea, something new or stuffs like that. Am I wrong in my opinion ? 2. I always wanted to do part-time PH.D in computer science that's the only way to get into research projects or people would entertain my application if I apply for. I am interested in open flow & SDN stuffs, I wanted to be part of that developing technology for which I need to have skills in kernal programming, python, unix, driver's, embedded sys or so of which I am interested to learn and develop. After good amount of exp in this field, I can start something my own or come up with my own ideas. FYI, I have only bachelor's degree from electrical & electronics engineering, So, I would be new to programming, would part-time PH.D be something possible for me? have anyone done part-time PH.D in computer science who can share their exp ? 3. Since, I have close to 8yrs exp, I can also focus on PMP, ITIL, MBA to mould myself completely towards management, but I don't have skills and dont want to play games or politics in Management. According to my goal, what do you think is practically an ideal path to choose from, part-time PH.D or other certifications like CCIE/JNCIEs or MBA/Management? Please share your thoughts/experience. Thanks in advance for your time and inputs :)

I agree with the first answerer, in that there's no need to get into technical things like programming; that you need a computer degree; and that we need more manager-technologists. Far too many accounts, commerce and finance people run British businesses. With respect, though, I sense you may be from elsewhere... More
