i got my bachelor in cs and finance from cfa. programmers are not paid a lot in developing countries. finance is more enjoyable imo, you get to interpret a lot of whats going on around and even corrupt intentions.
cs in developed countries are paid a lot but i can tell you it's a boring job where most time are spent debugging and managing dumb requests. the smarter you are, the more work you get for the same pay.
entrepreneurship wise, someone in finance would definitely do better – you can outsource coding functions (unless you have a large company) but you cant get someone to help make business decisions.
in both cases, i would recommend gradually transitioning to an entrepreneurship role instead of being a lifelong employee. you want to balance enjoying the good stuff in life with income instead of buying expensive stuff because you dont have time to properly spend the money. the rich has their own set of problems most cant see.

If you’re interested in both, you can always do both. Now, a lot of schools offer majors in information systems management (also called management information systems). I have a B.S. in hospitality management but, I’m back in school getting an A.S. in computer programming and analysis, and I love it. I don’t regret my bachelor’s degree, but I wish I had discovered my passion for programming and web development a lot sooner than I did.

Hello, I will join college soon but I have trouble choosing between software engineering and finance. do you think someone who doesn't have background knowledge on coding and no interest in it can get into it become successful and can you please tell me what personality traits should a person have to join CS and finance? I am really anxious rn and I would appreciate ur opinion on this

What would your opinions be on MIS? I'm currently in finance looking to double or minor and I noticed that MIS is a similar sort of degree to CS that would cut a considerable amount of time off of my education comparatively. Would you recommend going for one over the other and do you think there would be any tangible differences in job selection, etc? (MIS would be a double, CS would be a minor)

Great video Ryan!
Personally, I'm trying to decide whether I should pursue Computer Science or Business and Economics.
I live in Europe and we have a different system here. Basically, you choose a specific degree and only have classes related to that degree, meaning I can't simply choose one as my major and the other as a minor. I basically have to go with one or the other…
I'm currently trying to decide whether to go to the TU or the WU (both in Vienna).
I have an interest in both subjects, I've been coding simple programs and games for the past year and have enjoyed the process, but I'm also extremely interested in personal finance and the inner workings of a business (potentially starting my own).
What do you suggest? What would you choose if you were in my position?
Keep the videos coming man! 😀

CS seems to be a good fit for me, who’s introverted and socially awkward, but the amount of ridiculously challenging math involved in computer science is what intimidates me, especially since I want to graduate in 4 years.

So I have learned basic coding and programming language as well as creating websites but my major is in accounting. I applied for my job, and I show them my website, immediately got hired lmao. Still, I am more interested in programming, however, I need to learn about finance, how cooperation work in my country etc in order to start my own business, I am playing safe lmao.

I just have to disagree with you on the future part with regards to finance, because the quantitative part of hypothesis testing and developing financial models to explain returns could never be automated, plus they may lead to uncovering new areas in finance, because they belong to R&D and have the purpose of being innovative. One of these recent uncovered areas is behavioural finance, which may be of practical use in the financial industry one day and is an example of how finance is expanding.

I'm glad I found this video. Currently, I am at a crossroad to choose what Community College I want to go to. Ones focus is in Tech/Engineering and the other Finances/Business. I don't want to go in undecided cause I want to have clarity in my path and what I need to do. Personally, my main passion is music, but other than the fact my parents won't be down for it, I also want a job that gives me financial security and allows me be "creative." One thing I'm looking towards is starting a record label, which I'd presumes requires some skills in running a business. Finances would also help with my personal financial responsibilities and teach me how to invest. However, CS can also open doors for me that I am too young to be aware of.. Feeling very anxious and this video helped a little, so thank you!

Hello ! I have another question. I have heard so many times that governments all over the world are thinking about digital money instead of paper money . Probably it is not about USA right now but how any digital changes of banking system can impact finance degree?

Hi,

Hope you are well.

I am in 12th grade and I am very worried about my future. It's about 2 months to my final exams, but still, I am not able to decide what I am going to study in the future. Talking about my goal; it's to own a successful business by making an entrepreneur. But still, I don't discover what business I will be owning, like; I am 17 and I have no idea what the business world is. I am just passionate about having a successful business on a large scale.

As my goal is to become a businessman, I am not able to decide what should major I choose. My family members and others are advising me to major in computer science. They are saying; "if you have the interest to own a business, you can choose this field, like many Entrepreneurs and businessmen have the background of CS. you can do businesses like web development, digital marketing, etc. and then you can swipe to MBA."

So this is my question for you, Should I major in computer science or in a business field like BBA, B.S Accounting and Finance B.S Management, etc to improve my business skills (Personally, I am interested in a business degree)?

It will be my pleasure if you respond to me.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.

What are your thoughts on majoring in Finance and minoring in CS? Or major in CS and minor in Finance?

TheFootballPlaya 13/03/2022 - 6:26 Chiều

I'm currently in a bachelors for computer science. I would caution people going to school for this. If you do not have interests career-wise in software development or some specific area of computing like networks, AI, ML, CV, distributed computing, theoretical computer science, etc., don't go to school for cs. If you want to go into analytics, between the two given in the video, I'd choose Finance. Math/stat + domain knowledge seems way more necessary for something like analytics since the whole point is to provide insights for a business/government entity and not to develop software. The programming part is easy in either area development or analytics. The "what to do and why" part is the tricky one.

No one can beat Finance! It's damn high paying, based on real life and the most biggest thing it's the study of "money" which is the most important thing. computer science looks boring to me and it's not that much high paying as compared to finance even mostly CS grads are unemployed in many parts of the world. Finance is highly employable.
