I have recently been looking more into a degree in comp. science or comp. engineering. Yes I know there are already threads for this but they did not really help me out. I am pretty new to comp. programming. I do not really have a background in it but I have always loved working with computers and how they work and I believe that having a career involving computers would truly make me happy.
I want to be a computer systems software manager and I talked to my counselor and the guy told me that I can get a degree in CE or CS and it doesn't really matter. He told me that people that have a degree in CE can apply for jobs that require a CS but vice versa isn't true.
So the plan I came up with him was to:
- Get my BS in comp. engineering
- Get my MBA after getting my BS
- My plan, as of right now, is to get a job as a comp. systems software engineer then, God willingly, get promoted into a manger position. And our train of thought was that getting an MBA would make me appeal better than other candidates for the manager position,
What my question truly boils down to is this -
Did my counselor tell me the right things according to the degree? and should I get an MBA or should i spend that year getting certified in different vendor programs.
Thanks in advance.
