I'm going with no.

Part of this work is psychology which you either take courses in to get the job and learn on the job.

Let it be said that for now, no amount of schooling prepares you for the job. Unless it's for teaching in the same topic.

The more you've worked in the field, the better your knowledge will be of those systems and the needs of those assisting you in making the networks function.

Hope this helps.
