Which of Masters in Stats or Masters in Econometrics applies better to the
Are there investment or strategies used by money management firms that would make HR prefer someone with a Stats background over an Econometrics background (or vice versa)? If so, which strategy type (stat arb, , macro, credit event, options writing, etc.)?

Thanks a mil!
