WGU Cloud Computing Review (Bachelor’s Degree) | Is it worth it? Yes.

This video is going to cover/review the Cloud Computing bachelors degree from Western Governors University (WGU). I’m going to show all the classes and industry certifications earned within the degree and compare them to the classes and certifications earned in the General Bachelor’s in IT from WGU. I will also look on Indeed to see how marketable these certifications are in order to quantify the value of the Cloud Computing degree vs the General IT degree.

I’ll be doing a deep comparison between the General IT degree and Cloud Computing IT degree in terms of the differences between the classes as well as the differences between the certifications earned by both degrees.
I’ll also use Indeed job listing to try to better quantify the differences between these to degrees.

By the end of the video, we’ll have performed some objective analysis which should give most people a pretty good idea of which degree to go for.
I’ll also kind of lay out my thoughts and opinions on choosing a specialization

You won’t be pigeonholed depending on your degree
Cloud platforms are transferable to employers, a lot of my friends and coworkers have worked on one platform and then have been hired in another platform based on previous knowledge
