    It depends. Both career paths will take you there, it just depends on how long, the paths you will have to walk to get there, etc.

    For example, I did a search and found that the CTO of Lockheed Martin (the world's largest defense contractor) has a PhD. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Ray_O_Johnson
