    Hi,

    I'm really torn between these two subjects. The things that come to mind are:

    1. Which one is harder? If so, is it much harder or just a bit harder?
    2. Is it true that econometrics invloves a lot more maths than the other course?
    3. I'm doing finance, and I'm allowed to choose between these two subjects. Which course would suit me more?


    For reference about the subjects detail
    https://handbook.unimelb.edu.au/view/2013/ECOM20001 (Econometrics)
    https://handbook.unimelb.edu.au/view/2013/ECON20003 (QM Economics)

    Thanks so much, I appreciate your help!

    Honestly, I don't think there is much in it from reading those syllabi. I think the Econometrics module is slightly more well-rounded. But then again, you cover count models in the QM module whereas you don't in the Econometrics module.

    Without seeing lecture notes, we won't be able to say which is more mathematical or rigorous.

    But from the syllabi, the Econometrics module doesn't appear to be more difficult than the QM module and hence I'd opt for the Econometrics one.
