I am a final year Btech computer science student who has a strong desire for masters in computer science and a master in MBA management degree . I have got selected for one of the reputated companies InterraIT in my college. My passion for computer science has lead me to a path for a master degree in comp science from US. I have got a GRE score of 291 (I am pretty good with maths) and I am getting an average college in US like PACE university or some college in California. I am sure to do good in CAT , as per practise test and will certaily obtain 95 percentile or above . I would be doing both the degrees but its a matter of which comes first . Eventually the questions comes to : MS in computer science from US in average college or "MBA degree" from IIM or similar 1 tier college in 2017?

MBA and MSc are completely different degrees. If you enjoy working in technical line, then you can go for MSc or else MBA could be an option if you wish to switch to management field. Incase you want to confirm if your interests and personality (assuming Aptitude suitable for both MBA and MSc) fit a technical or management role, then you can confirm by giving a Career Assessment Test - http://www.allegiance-educare.in/plans/
