    initially i had no idea what i wanted to do so never acted upon it however it was only a year and a half ago i decided i wanted to become a manager of some sort thus enrolling on a BA hons business management degree. soon heading into my second year

    I've applied for English Lang&Lit. But I just don't know what I want to do with it. I need to make a decision fast but it's so damn hard

    Going to be doing Maths and Computer Science at Warwick.

    Well, the degree isn't really the focus (I just something I want to do) but the university definitely will play a part. Warwick has been traditionally targeted by every brand name IB, Consulting firm and Law firm out there. These fields just care about hiring smart, motivated and committed people into their cohorts. Any traditional degree subject will be good enough to break into these.

    Of course, if I wanted to pursue a more relevant career (say as an algorithmic trader, quant trader, software engineer etc) then my degree would most certainly give me the upper hand.
