You would have to be living underneath a rock if you hadn’t heard what is happening to the economy. Wall Street keeps managing to crash and burn. But not everyone is upset by this news.
Over the past few years since the 2001 dot-com bubble burst, university students have preferred careers in banking and finance to computer science related careers. "Many thought they could make more money in hedge funds, said William Dally, chairman of the computer science department at Stanford University.
Now, however, students are looking back at computer sciences as a way to earn a wage. John Gallaugher, associate professor of information systems in the Carroll School of Management at Boston College, has already noticed a shift back to computer sciences amongst his students. "Students have commented to me and written on their course wikis that they're considering changing from finance, both based on the appeal of IS and concern over availability of finance jobs" in the future, Gallaugher said.
