Both should (at least ISM does) give you ample opportunities for development albeit in different packages. I love what I got out of SMU but I do wonder what I'd have turned into if I went to SoC instead. It is a matter of what you want to do, in the end.

Really, it depends.

For those considering to take ISM, let me just share a few tips.

There are other degrees out there that don't require as much time and effort to complete.
ISM is the only degree in SMU that requires you to do a FYP (burnt one summer away, in fact for all your holidays, you'll be encourage to take up various courses) and does not allow you to re-take your CORE modules directly if you fail them because the school doesn't offer it.

An SIS student needs to be a consistent worker/mugger and must possess extreme tenacity in dealing with the heavy workload.

If you're up for the challenge, welcome to SIS. Really really think twice. Within my circle, I've known at least 3 who quit school, 4 who failed their fundamentals IS modules.

*This message serves as a reality check. My two cents worth.

Noticed that I'm only comparing within SMU. Yup, jialat within SMU.
Your IS mods had varying grading component to determine your competency.
Besides dealing with IS modes, you have Business modules which have varying projects as well.

Individual + Group proj + mid-terms + final exams. your 100% can be split into 10 (class part, note that SMU requires u to be actively contributing in class ,20 (mid terms) ,35 (final exam),15(individual project) ,20 (group proj) percent for grading.

Now, take 5 modules each sem. You'll definitely need to manage your time because all 5 groups will want to grab hold of you.
