Question about Advanced Degrees for International Educators

Back in 2003 I began researching advanced degree options to advance my career in the field of international education.  After much research I narrowed my choices down to an MBA program and a Ph.D. program and in the end I chose to pursue a Ph.D. in Comparative and International Education at Loyola University of Chicago.

Did you complete or are you pursuing an advanced degree (beyond a Master of Arts or Master of Sciences degree)?  What did you choose and why?  Did it (or do you think it will) make you a better International Educator?
