Whats a good Grad School Degree to Get with CS?

Hello Everyone!

Im currently an undergrad student that is majoring in CS. I wanted to go to Grad School for an extra degree. Before, I wanted to go to Law School as this was my second best interest but the topic of “Does this help your CS degree” comes up alot which kind of makes sense. The next thing I heard which kind of makes sense in my head is to go to Business school. A degree in Economics could do nicely, atleast thats how i thought of it in my head. Im going to be doing alot of math anyway so why not I thought.

What do you guys think? Any tips?

What are your career plans?

You should get your CS degree, work for two or three years, and then decide what you want to do. If the objective of getting a graduate degree right after you get your Bachelor’s is to immediately enter management when you enter the work force, that’s not going to happen.

MBA goes good with a CS degree I feel.

Don’t go to graduate school just because you want an “extra degree.” Get a graduate of professional degree because you have a reason to get it, not just because you think it would arbitrarily go well with CS. What would be useful depends on what you want to do, which it sounds like you’re really not sure of. So this is a bad time to get a graduate degree. Masters and law degrees are expensive, and it makes no sense to sink yourself into debt for it when you don’t know what you plan to do with it. I agree with simba that your best bet is to work for a few years if you don’t have a goal for why you want a graduate degree.

I completely agree with @simba9! Work for a few years, and you’ll have a much better idea of your career interests once you have work experience. My husband opted to work for several years prior to getting his MBA and it was the best decision he could have made. Most of the top programs require work experience anyhow, and his interests/strengths morphed once he got into the work force. Good luck!
