    Hi am interested in getting a B.S/M.A in CS and then trying to get an MBA. I am wondering what jobs are their related with these two type of degrees?

    Also I like designing User Interfaces and wondering what type of job/degree would you need in order to succeed in this type of field.

    These are currently my two areas i would like to go to once i graduate.

    Also what area pays more for CS Graduates? is the pay in Europe equal to pay in U.S

    Thanks.

    this question seems very vague/open ended. surely your school has a career counselor right?

    since you are asking about pay and that seems to be the most important thing

    I will just say do not go into a career for the money because it is not worth it. You will not want to get up every day for work. Do something you enjoy for a living and the money will follow.

    well sites like this can give you some ideas

    http://www.payscale.com/research/US/Country=United_States/Salary
    http://swz.salary.com/salarywizard/layouthtmls/swzl_salarycenter.html

    also take into cost of living of the place so sites like this are nice

    but id still definitely recommend talking to a career counselor as well
