    No, you'd need to do professional exams afterwards to qualify, the degree may qualify you for exemptions from some of the exams however.

    Also would this degree be suitable to go into banking or is there a better degree ?

    I know people who have, don't think it would be a massive disadvantage but there are definitely more relevant degree courses.

    you'd still need to do professional exams after but could get exemptions from your course.

    the annoying thing i've found is that after three years of study i am no closer to getting a job. rejection after rejection after rejection and that's with a predicted first class degree from a reasonably well respected business school.
