Hey guys, I'm deciding between my university choices and I'm really at a dilemma right now. I can choose between Information Systems, Computer Science and Business. Opinions please?

Computer Science is probably the one with the best career prospects in terms of versatility and pay, however, I'm not really into coding. I've also read that the Mathematics is insanely tough.
Information Systems, a hybrid between Comp Sci and Business. I would love to go for this, but my only concern is SMU's fees are $3k higher per annum. Is it worth it?
Business, some people say it's too general with limited prospects.
Which would you go for?

    It is rather tough. You can try either

    1. Go for CS and use IS as a backup (Change course)

    2. Go IS direct. If you don't think you're really into coding, go IS!

      If your interest is not into Computer Science, then you are likely to suffer for the next 4 years. As a result, we won't even know if you are able to graduate in reality.

      Assume that you have graduated, will you really like to do things that you do not like (e.g. coding) for the next half of your life? While you may earn some decent amount of money, your mental health suffers. In the long run, are you able to hold out?

      As for the latter, there are two things that you can do: 1) increase income; and 2) reduce expenditure.

      Create a concrete plan on how you can get a job during vacation to boost your income. Make a proper plan such that the fees will not become an issue.

      Here is a Guide:

      Understanding Your Personal Cash Flow

      When you enjoy what you are doing, things get a lot easier. Above all, you can earn money anytime. But I'm not sure whether you should force yourself to struggle through now.
