MSISS at TCD vs Economics & Finance and Actuarial & Financial Studies at UCD????

    I'm really stuck on deciding between which course I should put as my first choice on CAO, I love maths and love the finance/economics side of business but I'm mainly concerned on which course would be the ultimately most highly regarded course. in general, in terms of salary, career progression, job prospects and opportunities, which one would be seen as the best option and I don't mind doing BAFS either as I think actuaries get paid well but what jobs can I get with MSISS since it's seen as a very good course with different combinations? I would really appreciate anyone who helps me decide by giving their thoughts and opinions on this.

    I'm also wondering how would DN200 Science (I would be looking to do Financial Maths if I were to pick this) at UCD or a pure Mathematics degree or a global business degree at Trinity College compare to the other 3 courses that I have in the discussion title in terms of future career prospects and salary?
