I have a friend who has obtained a Management Information Systems 2 year degree. She is torn between two Universities to continue her education for a bachelors degree.
One offers an Information Technology degree and the other offers a Management Information Systems degree. For the purposes of a career, how much will the degree impact the type of job she will be open to?
I have been working in Software Development for many years and it has been my experience that most companies do not differentiate between the two. I'm sure some large companies do but even in those cases I would think that in many cases the company would consider an IT degree to fill a MIS position and vice-versa. My experience is limited to a handful of companies so I am reaching out to the community for input.
There are other factors at play in her decision making such as commute and cost but for the purposes of this post I'm just interested in the degree type. Thank you.
