UCL MSc Statistics or MSc Computational Statistics and Machine Learning?

Hi all, I am a prospective student who is looking to enrol in either MSc Statistics or Computational Statistics and Machine Learning.

I have a degree in Data Science, which involves both statistics and coding. My goal is to either become either a quant/trader or data scientist/machine learning engineer.

I think MSc Statistics is seen as more 'traditional' and 'academic', whereas CSML is seen as more 'modern', but practical. However, my bachelor's is also seen as more 'modern' and perhaps less academic. I am unsure which would be a better choice and have better opportunities/prospects.

Any suggestions as to which I should pick?
