The USA is a great choice for pursuing higher education. For MS, you should choose a course that you like. If you are interested in computer science and are not opting for it just because you don't want to go into software development, then don't worry; there are other options that you can pursue, like data analytics. Since you don't have a background in CS, you will have to check the eligibility criteria of the universities to which you are applying. Depending on the university, you may need to study a few different subjects. If you don't like coding, consider a career as a data analyst, business analyst, or project manager. You would still be in the technical field and only need to perform some coding.

Additionally, there are technical writing, web development, and cyber security opportunities. Also, you can pursue system engineering, database administration, or network administration as they are less code-focused and more technologically oriented. Finally, you could also consider getting a degree in management information systems (MIS), a computer science degree with an emphasis on business management systems. Although for this, you will need to learn to build software and put together the data and techniques required to provide data, information, metrics, etc.
