I am planning on going to UCSB this fall and I was admitted with a Pre-Economics/Mathematics major. I want to end up working as an investment banker. Is it likely that a student from UCSB can land an investment banking job after college? Is it bad to go to UCSB if I want to do investment banking?
I am currently working for a big CPA firm. I have two years of experiences. I am looking to make a switch to Financing, particular Investment Banking. I have been searching for an associate position at many of the IB firms, but all of them seem to require an MBA or IB experience. Due to this reason I am planning to apply to business school. Is it possible for me to find a IB or equity research job without prior experiences or an MBA? If so, how?
I've just graduated with a degree in Management with Entrepreneurship and now on the hunt for a good job!
I'm really interested in applying for some investment banking positions but do i need to be good at maths? I left all that behind at GCSE level. I have done a module on accounting and another vaguely related to maths, but otherwise I don't have any existing numerate skill.
Is this a problem? Should i look elsewhere for a job?
I am planning to go to grad school next year to hopefully get into investment banking after i graduate. I am a recent college grad, but not from a big school. My question is, what kind of job can i get right now, full time or part time, that can help me with my resume when i do go and graduate the MBA program and apply for investment banking? Will getting a job as a teller in one of the branch banks help, especially having experience with the bank when i apply for the investment banking division of the bank?
Please tell me what degree should i study for investment banking in college ?
I want to be an investment banker and I am planning on changing my major to finance (I'm only a freshman). I would like to do economics because I like it but I have heard accounting was a good minor and others have said math was helpful but i don't see how math theory classes and such would be helpful in investment banking. please help
Is there a job in investment banking where you don't actually work with a lot of the numbers, but make the pitch books and communicate with other companies? It would not involve having to figure the numbers out yourself, but taking the information given to you and presenting it to a company. Something that really requires good communication and presenting skills rather than mathematical matters. Does a job like that exist, or is it just an aspect of a job for people who work with math in investment banking?
This is a question on a job application I am completing. I need to describe a recent development and how it would affect an investment banking department 1st hand in their day to day work.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!
What kind of math is involved? How difficult is the job in general? As an MBA graduate, will you be prepared to enter the field of investment banking?
Can students at international business administration obtain internships and jobs at investment banks. Is it a good degree for investment banking or a degree in accounting and finance be better. what about international economics and business economics?
Please don't give silly answers...
I am a college student majoring in economics. I also want to get a master's degree in financial economics or financial engineering. My question is , to those who work in finance or those who might know, what are my options after i graduate with a masters of finance degree....ive heard about investment banking and i know its very multifacted but is that the only option.i also realize an investment banker has to work a ridiculous amount of hours per week. also, are there any jobs in finance with reasonable hours.
I have got a degree in communication studies but over the past few years have started to get very interested in finance. How would i go about changing from my current career (sales) to investment banking. I am 23 and prepared to go back to Uni if this is the best option. I thought about doing this at the start of my degree and wished i had now.

I am very interested in entering the investment banking field, and would like to know the different types of positions available.
Do you have to be really good at all types of math to succeed in investment banking (specifically mergers and acquisitions?) How much math is required/done every day on the job? Do quantitative analysts do all the math?

I've been thinking of moving from York to central London with the hope of getting a job in a large investment bank. I have some friends who are working in investment banks of which a couple have moved from places like Surrey to be in London. There seems to be a popular theme of stress and long unbearable working hours when working in London, specifically in financial companies. I want to know how much of this is actually true and whether its just caused by bad self management? I feel extremely driven and have always enjoyed being in London and think I could cope, but never actually worked there. Working in York seems too chilled out and quiet but is it worth moving to work in the city for the higher salary? Is working in an investment bank or other financial firms in the city really too stressful to handle?
I'll only have a BBA in Finance and I've heard it's hard to get a job in investment banking without MBA so what's a job I should get in the meantime that will be useful to the future career in investment banking or private equity?
I've heard only great things about the Investment Banking Institute. Everyone who has attended said it was one of the best decisions they have ever made. However, I cannot seem to find the cost of attending their courses. Does anyone know of the estimated cost of enrolling in the Investment Banking Institute?
