> But, most importantly, take what interests you!

This is the only rule to follow, whatever you want to end up doing at the
end (plus the corollaries "take the prerequisites for what interests you",
and "take whatever you are forced to by the administration"), computer
science, business, arts, whatever.  If you don't do that, then you end up
either with poor marks (no matter how smart you are) or hating studying.

The corresponding rule, of course, is to only apply for jobs that interest
you.  This should mean that if you've followed the above, you have all the
qualifications you need (as well as some others, hopefully).

Just my opinion, but based on many years of study as well as observing my
students.
