    I think you mean 2015, not 2005.

    If you mean 2005, I'll pay you quite a bit of money so I can relive 2005 again :bigsmile:

    Unless you're either dyslexic or writing your post on a smart phone, the first thing you need to do is improve your written English (and I'm not just talking about the spelling mistakes or lack of capitals). In my firm, we talk about making small changes to make a big difference; you should try and become the best in everything you do if you want to work in investment banking (front or back office) and you can start by making your writing clear and easy to understand at all times.

    Beyond that, other posters have reliably informed me that you really need to be working for a target university (I don't know them all but Imperial and the LSE are often mentioned). Although I don't advocate university snobbery this makes sense to me because the content of MSc Finance degrees at target universities do tend to be distinguisable from the rest. It's hard to state this in a clear cut way, but as a rule of thumb they are more quantitative (to add further context, I work in financial regulation, a much more qualitative topic, and these degrees would be useless to me as they don't tend to offer many units in financial regulation. In contrast, other university's finance degrees do. These top institutions instead tend to offer separate degrees for my needs, for example the LSE's MSc Regulation).

    If you haven't worked for a target university, then I'd recommend your next step is to complete the CFA if you want to work in the Front Office.
