Question: I would like to find out if there is a difference employers sense from a candidate having a technical undergrad degree vs. one who has a business undergrad, but a technical masters degree.
I'm not sure how to phrase this appropriately to be on-topic for this site.
The reason why is because I'm currently in the latter bucket (getting a double MBA/MS in Software Engineering) and I have undergrad degrees in Administration and Economics.
I'm currently applying for summer internships and have found some firms require computer science/engineering undergrad degrees. My thought is that my application would be fine, as I've gotten into a Master's program for a technical degree, and that should speak to my technical skills/knowledge --> leading to an interview etc.
I've found that these companies are not interested, and I think it's based on them not making this connection.
