    May be you can opt for MBA (IT), where you do need technical expertise but only to head a technical department. You won't be doing the actual coding or programming yourself but you will have enough knowledge to devise strategies to streamline IT projects. Plus, it is a very upcoming field and companies these days do have CTO (Chief Technical Officer) and CIO (Chief Information Officer) as parallel positions to other C-positions in the corporate world.
