Satellite and Microwave Systems Chiefs (31T) As Communications Managers
In order to be an effective communications manager, you need to understand the constantly changing world of technology. You probably have some experience with cutting edge technology and equipment as an MOS 31T. Many companies and organizations look for the kind of managerial skills you used daily as an NCO, but they also generally hire candidates with a bachelor's degree.

A Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or Management Information Systems
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, applicants for management positions in computer science benefit from experience in the field, as well as a bachelor's degree in computer science or information systems management. Coursework in management, business, and computer science can help round out the experience you already gained as an MOS 31T.

The Army's Education Programs Can Help
Through the tuition assistance program, you can begin and complete your bachelor's degree for free--earning up to 100 promotion points by taking civilian education courses. For your convenience, many courses are available online. Online degree programs allow you to take courses wherever you are stationed. However, if you've already separated from the service, you can use your Montgomery GI Bill in order to complete your degree, either through an online degree program or traditional, campus-based school.
