That’s the difference between “computer science” and “computer information systems”.

In “computer science” you take calculus and discrete structures so that if someone asks you whether that sort algorithm is the correct one, you can show them the mathematical proof that it is.

In “computer information systems”, you take business math so that if someone asks you whether the sort algorithm is the correct one, you shrug your shoulders and tell them that the software they need is within their departmental budget.

Most “computer science” people either end up in hardware or software development. Most “computer information systems” people end up in the data center actually running the computers. That’s where I work. The company I work for pays me a very, fair salary.
