What is better MS in Computer Science or MS in Cloud Computing

My brother intend to enroll in a US college for his MS in Cloud computing. We have been debating whether Cloud Computing is a serious specialized stream or a buzzword today. Your opinion will help us decide.

Check Dice.com, Simply Hired, Glassdoor and some of the other job sites. See how many jobs are available in each field right now, and which companies are hiring for them. That's the best way to figure out what skill sets are in demand.

There was an article on IT World about building a career in cloud computing a couple of years ago. It’s a little dated, but the basic thesis is still valid: “Basic IT skills topped off with management finesse and business know-how are good starting points.” Being familiar with AWS, Azure, etc. would be a good thing, obviously.

Tough call. Cloud computing isn't going away, but an MS in computer science might make your brother more versatile, which could help in the job market.
