I have a question that’s been on my mind for a while.
I want to break into the web-dev field, for now.
I’m currently in the process of getting my bachelor’s degree in economics.
I recently started learning to program, and I like it.
So my question is: is it a good idea to continue my studies with a CS Master or not?
My thinking goes like this: if I have a CS Master’s degree then I would have bigger chances of getting employed as a programmer. Also, I think that I would have a better grasp of the subject matter if I dove into it as an actual student.
I know that there are lots of stories about people getting hired without a degree, especially in the web development field. But, I want to get employed in Germany, where many things, including employment, are often based on certificates. And I want to give myself a chance if I ever want to go to the software development route or data analysis.
And since I’m not from Germany, I figured I would have a better chance of getting employed over a native if I had a Master’s degree.
For the record: a Master’s degree in my country takes 2 years to complete.
