There are no degree subject requirements for IBanking. You could study underwater basket weaving, and as long as you did it at Oxbridge (NB this is not a degree offered by Oxbridge ) it would be acceptable. The "brand name" of your university is by far and away the most important thing - Oxbridge, LSE, Warwick, UCL and Imperial probably being the main targets, along with the other major London unis (KCL, QMUL), Durham and the upper echelon of the Russell Group being the next best.

Now, if you wanted to go into quantitative finance specifically, then yes something "numerate" would be necessary - as would usually a masters or PhD. So pick something you like. This doesn't need to Mathematical Economics specifically though - Computer Science, Engineering, and Physics are all usually acceptable, and CS may well be more desirable than the alternatives since a lot of quant work is programming and developing software (of course good mathematical skills are required as you're programming to solve mathematical problems of various kinds).

But for "general" IBanking it's irrelevant what you study, on the whole.

LSE is by far the best university in the world for getting into investment banking roles irrespective of course.

That said UCL is very good and so is Warwick.

Finance related degrees are most relevant followed by econ (provided you do finance courses in your econ degree)
