Submission + - Does a Master's degree benefit an IT career?

An anonymous reader writes: Some people have claimed here that they have done fine career wise without degrees, and I was wondering about a situation in the opposite direction. Do master degrees help at all career wise in the IT or software development fields? Is there any value in mixing up your degrees, for example a bachelor's in CS and a master's in Applied Math or Business, or getting a CS master's degree to make up for a bachelor's in a non-IT field like science?
