How does the CCNP compare to a master's degree

I hold a Computer Science and Information Technology diploma. They say CCNP is a degree in networking. Can I go for my masters after CCNP?

The Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) is not an actual degree per se, but a professional level certification that Cisco uses to measure a candidate's knowledge in routing and switching technologies. The equivalent of a masters for CCNP would be the prestigious CCIE Routing and Switching. For more information, view SearchNetworking.com's networking certification guide.
