Big Data MS vs MBA


I want to study for either an MBA or an MS in Analytics / Big Data and I am not sure which path would be the best.

I am working as an analyst in a financial firm for three years. I am looking to move up the career ladder if you will, and break into management and eventually C suite. I am only 25 right now so the sky is the limit.

My choices include the Master of Science in Business Analytics from NYU or a more general MBA degree from a school like perhaps Notre Dame.

Can anybody advise which of these or another would be best to meet my goals.

You will need an MBA. Why not take your time and get into a better school than Notre Dame?
