international finance or econometrics - May 7th, 2005

hey guys,
in the sixth semester of BMS we have to choose between econometrics or international finance. i am totallly confuse what to take. econometric is very boring. it is more of maths. but whatever is taught in econometrics has no practical application in todays world. on other hand international finance is very interesting and has relevance to what is actually practised in the finance world. but the problem comes with the marking scheme of the university. in econometrics even a average student can score upto 55 out of 60. but an international finance student doesnt get more than 40 out of 60 it being a theory paper. pls give ur suggestions

Very true.. econometrics is scoring ... international finance is interesting..
If you r planning to do something related to finance in future then i thnk u shud take that.. else i thnk econometrics shud b the 1 coz it increases ur marks.. its like choosing between french n computers while doing junior collg... french is scoring.. but u cant get much use out of it.. computers is interesting but u cant score much..

If you goin for marketing.. go for ecotrix..

"IF" also is too much of probs solving but it has theory too

Well.... it all depends on wht career wud u like to pursue aftr ur graduation...
If u want to go into the Finance stream (highly recommended) then u should blindly go for Int Fin and SSF....

Int Fin is not plain theory. It has many problems tht are very simple once u understand the basic fundas.... Theory again has a lot of practical reasonings involved. U will learn everything about the present nature of the Financial world. It is very interesting... trust me.... True tht u wont score as much as u do in Econometrics.... but the knowledge tht u will gain frm it is immensly useful in the future.....

But if u are not a very finance inclined person then u gotta to take Econometrics which is (i suppose) plain sums and very scoring....

I had taken IF this year nd my IF paper was the best of the lot.... Having taken SSF nd IF, I strongly recommend ppl to take Finance.... However, if u r inclined towards Marketing then u shud as well go fr Econometrics....

Re: international finance or econometrics - June 20th, 2006

hi everyone
i have already gone through this phase of choosing amongst the same subjects @bbe . what my experiencesays is that if u want to make a career in international accounting procedures or in the field of finance then only go for int finance as econometris is slightly tough but is preffered immensly by data analysts and market research firms alonside kpo's , so there is a good chance that u will land up in a good job after u have done econmetrics.
regards
nitin
