A Masters in Applied Econometrics is very well regarded in the market. I was offered several jobs in banking even during the biggest downturn in memory. Econometrics is an instant indicator of quantitative skills that are highly valued, and quite rare, giving you more freedom and more options. I chose to study at Monash because of the reputation of the university as a whole, and the Department of Econometrics in particular. The Master of Applied Econometrics opened up many many doors. I certainly wouldnt be living in Singapore and working in my current job without it.
