    Yeah. I've got a year of school left, but have to start applying for scholarships in a couple of days so am trying to gather as much information as possible about the avenues available to me before I make the decision that will pretty much dictate my future :/

    Basically, would it be possible to get a job in finance (financial advisor, whatever) with a degree in economics - or do you require a specific finance degree?

    In UK you can have any degree that teaches you how to count. A friend of mine is going to have his internship in Restructuring division and he's got degree in Physics. I have an offer for Risk Management, a people on my course (Economics) are going into Finance (Middle Office) and M&A and accounting. When I was going for AC for Risk people were doing Compute Science, Maths, MORSE etc. As long as you can count, know about the role you're applying for and the world of finance and you have competencies you're gonna be fine (conditional on job market when you graduate).

    That being said, do take Financial Economics modules offered by while your at university.
