What should I do?
p.s. I know I'm kind of going overboard on this since I still have 2 years...
Perhaps consider Information Systems. At my campus, this is described basically as Information Technology with a focus in business environments (you do learn some business practices, accounting, macro economics, etc...)
Then again, if you're looking to open a business, perhaps major in business management/marketing with a minor in IT or something similar.....
To be honest, if you have a degree in business but are still knowledgable when it comes to computers, all you need to do is get a few certs and you can get almost any computer job you want.
I personally swapped from getting an IT degree to a Business Management degree after I had spoken to a few business execs about the subject.. and once I had realized how much math was involved in getting an IT degree
Thanks for the quick responses. I have considered Information Technology as another major, forgot to add that. How difficult are the certifcation test/courses? What major/minor would you recommend if I were, to say, start a business involved in the web hosting industry or maybe even web development?
The cert tests aren't very hard if you take the courses and read the material. It takes a lot less time to do than weeks of college courses because it's compressed.
If you're going to start a webhosting business, I'd recommend a Business Management degree with maybe a minor in Advertising or Public Relations, or maybe even Finance. It all depends on what aspects of the business you want to get heavily involved with.
Yeah, one of the best things you can do is talk to a college advisor about this type of decision; however, in my experience most advisors have no idea what 'webhosting' even is so I'd also try to talk to some business and computer science department teachers.
Management Information Systems... can anyone describe this to me? Is it basically Information Technology with a large business aspect to it? What's different between Information Systems and Information Technology?
