    Computer science is one of the most wanted degrees today… business management on the other hand, is not! The sector is so awfully overwhelmed! I was about to begin business management but I ended up not doing it! Not? only business management atleast… I’ll be getting a sector called “Business Management and Information technology”… pretty new, and then I’ll be going computer science only~!

    Just wondering. I’m an undergrad business student wondering about taking a minor in computer science. Do you know if there is a lot of demand for that type of degree set in? today’s job market?

    this is fals. the only way they would “snatch your job” would be if you havent? proven your self as an a player, only b and c players get cut from the team. Just dont be any less than a b-player

    Not a drop out, iv just had to put the rest of my education on hold for a year wail i work to pay bills. (im in my last year of high school) but as for my knowledge of computers and every thing els in the world i learned on the internet. Im a vary strong believer in the fact there is literally? nothing you cant learn from YouTube and Google. i plan on getting my last few credits by way of a G.E.D then working on a few projects i have been waiting for the resource for.

    yah? u r right iagree. thats what i thought . unfortunately i was unable to pass the entrance test of IIT.thats the best institute in world..and now i was taking admission in a crapy college thats why i leaved. there are millions college in india.even if u go to college and study.its hard to get someone to notice u and hire u .u gotta be something different to get the world to notice u..and i trust myself that i can and i will do something different without college.

    : go? to college

  14. xooGFXoox

    You’re? wrong.

  15. xooGFXoox

    You can study more on the internet. That’s true. Maybe you’ll learn more. BUT when you look for a job, the employer’s not gonna look at your browsing history to see if you studied or not. You need a diploma. Maybe? he’ll give you the job without the diploma but sooner or later someone else that does have a diploma will come and snatch your job away. I recommend you go to college. A good one too, not some crappy college. You say you don’t want to waste money but this is an investment –My opinion.
