I have a bachelor's in CIS and am now thinking of returning to school to get a Master's degree. My university of choice offers a CS degree and CIS degree.
I think of computer science as more low level technical classes combined with math. I think of information systems as higher level technical classes combined with business. What are your perceptions?
I'm wondering what the best choice is in the long run. Don't a lot of techies turn to management eventually? If so, isn't it better to get the business training along with a technical education? I've been a programmer for 2-3 years and I've never needed to know how to work with the complex mathematical equations you need to understand while earning a CS degree.
CS degrees seem much more common in software development than cis. I've heard some cs grads look down on cis.
What do you all think?
