Start With Computer Science Undergrad Degree and get an MBA later?

InBreadInBread Registered User Posts: 35 Junior Member
I feel like I want to eventually try for an MBA because I definitely want to get into business at some point, but none of the typical "business" undergraduate degrees like economics or accounting really appeal to me. I enjoy computer science and think I'm naturally inclined/talented for that field, but I'm concerned about whether not having a traditional business degree will hurt my chances of getting into an MBA program.

Additionally, do you guys think that this is a good combination in general? I was also looking at a communications major, but that seems so boring and non-practical.

    get the CS degree, get a job then apply for the MBA in a few years. no school will look down on that.

    MBA programs do not require any specific undergraduate major. Many do prefer post BA/BS work experience, so if the selection of undergraduate major helps you in getting post BA/BS jobs that you like, then that is a consideration.
