I have learnt that Biochemistry isn't a favoured degree subject for IBD and other financial roles. Would a 3 year Biochemistry with management degree be looked upon favourably by financial institutions considering the modules include accounting, business economics etc?

Banks like Deutsche bank state they look for numerical ability when applying for IBD, if there was the opportunity to study Biochemistry with management at Imperial or chemistry/physics at a less branded university which one do you think would be looked at more favourably? Also, do you think the 3 year course with management would be looked at more favourably considering the last year is taught in Imperial business school?

subject doesn't matter / aslong as you justify whatever interest you have in the subject and can demonstrate academic excellence - imperial is a good university and would be looked at favourably, if complemented with a relatively strong profile.

Do you think the 3 years joint management would be viewed more favourably due to the finance aspect of it as opposed to just biochemistry?

they don't care about your subject choice - do something you enjoy but attend a target uni ideally. subject choice is irrelevant its the skills you learn through your extra curriculars. its that simple.

Was this exit only possible coming from the IBD? How did it compare in terms of hours/pay?
