I graduated in IE from Canada 25 years ago, my first job was in a Telco, writing process, procedures and policies for the Call Center. I eventually ended up in the IT industry and I am 50% in writing process, procedures and policies for software development and 50% managing a software program/project.

I have 0% experience in coding/programming.

Do you want to work as a programmer or do you want to work in the IT/software industry?

P/S I also have a useless MBA (but I was sponsored by my previous co, so it wasn't too bad)

That sounds like an industrial engineer jobscope. I think as a programmer you will end up in the IT/software industry. And for the industries, as I am still are very less in exposure to a lot of industries. I will give it a shot and contribute.

How do you handle the program/project without any coding/programming knowledge ? How do you manage that?

Yeah, for me it's just something nice to put on your CV that may help you to get to the front door. But to say that it's something that makes you a valueable person, it needs proof for that.

As a project/program manager you just need to know how the flow in software development works. Coding is just one part of it.
