WGU : Trying to decide what degree path to take

Currently thinking of going to WGU to make a proper path for myself into a career. I'd like to get into IT but be able to utilize it towards Marketing or business.

I already hold a BA from a State University - graduated 2014. Last 7 years I've created and run a traveling art side business which utilizes sales, marketing, event planning, etc. Currently learning Adwords, Analytics, SQL, general coding on Freecodecamp, and hoping to go for Comptia A+.

I've been thinking BS Data Analytics but I've seem some people mention here it's more programming oriented rather than data oriented? I don't meet the requirements for the MS in Data Analytics but I'd be a fish out of water anyways without foundations. Also math isn't my Strong Suit - most I've done is college statistics in 2010. Every marketing/business entry level job or internship I've looked at so far reads "required : BS in business, marketing, or data analytics, or related field - mba preferred/mba a plus".

WGU just released their computer science BS which seems much more well rounded overall, except I don't have the pre-requisites. Closest I could do would be take Calculus on straighterline and then apply but again, math not my strong suit.

The other suggestion seems to be Net Ops is a generally good program since it provides a lot of certifications - however I don't really feel like this is the direction I'm looking for.

I qualify currently for the MBA program at WGU so my plan was to pick up an IT degree and then go MBA.

Driving myself crazy trying to figure this all out, looking for some advice - Thanks!
