I am thinking of working for 1-2 years after my degree. After that i would apply for masters in computing and work for 2 more years before going to a MBA in business. My ultimate aim is to shift from software to finance in the future. But my dilemma is whether i should apply for computer science or mechanical engineering for my degree as i am worried about the job prospects for IT in Singapore. Anyone please offer me your guidance and suggestions. I am open to all.
Computer science should have better prospects. Start in software and move into consulting, presales or sales. Or move into finance.
