    nowadays you can do almost any course and get into any career. Ofcourse with some exceptions. you need to know what you want to do first and then choose a course that matches what younwant to do, not the other way round! hope this helps.

    That is a great program (the first link), and your opportunities would be quite endless with a degree in a program like this. That would be a great fit for consulting, business analyst, relationship manager, etc. Every growing business either uses the web to gain exposure, sells solutions or software, or at least has software that they use to increase productivity.

    I think you would be set up to really market yourself as a candidate with a deep business background as well as gaining highly marketable technical skills. A "jack of all trades" if you will.

    You could really determine your final postion when you graduate by landing several internships in areas that interest you. If you are not sure about what positions are out there, you will learn about them quickly as you progress through your courses. Go for it, sounds like an excellent program to lead into your professional career or to pursue your MBA later on.

    Software engineers/computer folks are two-a-penny these days. As a profession it has an enormous standing army of unemployed and it is very susceptable to jobs being offshored to places like India.

    Up to you but I wouldn't touch it personally.
