Too early in to decide path. But can lean towards digital game, application and marketing side. Of which in Pakistan is hardly any. Software engineering would do wonders for a future career on this side. Web development, game development, application development with further knowledge in digital marketing would help. But such a career would be best however many opportunities exist in Pakistan and will exist in future as well.

Dear Muhammad Khan: First you need to focus on your career prospective whether you want to be in ‘Business Management’ or ‘Computer Sciences’ specifically. If you love to make games, then you should be a ‘Games Developer’ with the skills in Graphic or GUI Designing. It is a good career and very much in demand especially if you can design it for mobile applications like in Android or in iOS.

 Per my knowledge, I suggest you to do BS (Computer Sciences) and then MBA-IT or MIS which is a combination of both business and IT. In MBA, you have an option to do 2 to 3 specializations. So, you can do it in future if you would be interested. Finally, choose the right institute or university. Even its better if you take a look at the courses, they are offering in a certain program for making a better choice. So, make your own career map and follow it. Good luck!

You need to first sit and assess your strengths and weaknesses along with your level of interest. You should opt for the field in which you have interest as earning money is not the main issue. You can earn money even by selling things.

 If you select the discipline in which you are interested, you would be more creative and interested in working plus you would have a enjoyable work life ahead In Shaa’ Allah.

 Just sit and analyze the different professions and their job nature and then decide.

Knowing yourself is the key to best decide about your career goals. You need to know yourself more.
