Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi there everyone!!! I am posting after on this forum after quite a while...


I am about to make a very important decision regarding my academic career but i am puzzled on which degree would be more beneficial like the title suggests i have the option of "m.sc IT"(mostly concerned with software engineering) and "m.sc information and operational management"...,now i should make this clear that i graduated with a degree in commerce(b.com) so i have no background in software engineering or computer science but i LOVE mathematics...,any form of it(except from geometry of course)and for that reason i think i will go somewhere in this field but the problem with this field is(or at least what i have heard)is that after completing your degree you need to spend a good amount of time in a software house(with little to no pay) so you can polish your skills and only after that you can get a high profile job and because of the fact that i am already 22 years of age and completely broke this really scares the hell out of me i don't mind choosing operational management but i think IT suits me MUCH better and it is also more economical:biggrin:.

I don't live in the US(i am from PAKISTAN)so things might be a little different in terms of course outlines of the our respective countries so i am posting the course outline of m.sc IT

And also m.sc operational management as well

I would be waiting for a quick reply..., thanks in advance:smile:
