Hi there,

I'll make this quick. I'm a postgraduate student looking to get into trading when I've finally finished uni. I'm currently applying for summer and off-cycle internships for next year (2015). I have a decent UG degree, Quantitative Finance MSc currently being studied for and over a year in BO at a BB.

Will registering for the CFA June 15 (obviously with the intention of sitting it) help boost my applications for the internships?


Cheers

So you're going to say that you have registered? Might as well say you applied to MENSA while you're at it

CFA isn't relevant for trading as I'd imagine you know. So it would be seen as an unnecessary expense
