I'm having a hard time deciding between the Data Science course at UNSW and USYD. Could someone tell me the pros and cons of each and also provide an overall judgement on where the degree is better.

In short, the data science major at USYD is a mix of statistics and computer science, whereas the Data Science and Decisions course at UNSW in addition has compulsory economics in it.

In my honest opinion (as someone who has studied statistics, computer science and economics), economics is worthless for data science. You'd be better off spending those extra credit points on more stats/comp sci/maths units, or anything you personally find interesting. Apart from that, doing data science at either university is just as good.
