Want to go into Sales and Trading IB, or M&A in a IB, or Management Consulting when graduate. Want to do Engineering as keeps options open, but Finance might be easier to get into these areas.

Any thoughts much appreciated.

If I go down Engineering Route will apply for Engineering at Warwick and UCL as main two.

If I go down Finance Route will apply for Finance at LSE, Statistics, Economics and Finance at UCL, and Accounting and Finance at Warwick.

Which out of these two will keep my options open but also allow me the best option to pursue career in Sales and Trading in a IB, or M&A in a IB, or Management Consulting.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Both degrees are quite good but, if by keeping your options open you mean finance related jobs, I would definitely go with a Economics or Finance degree as it relates to Sales and Trading in a IB, or M&A in a IB, or Management Consulting ect. Would definitely not choose accounting and finance for it. You will probably find you have the best prospects gunning for Economics at LSE. Good luck man!

Your degree will have little to no benefit on any of those roles - you can very easily learn what you need to learn independently. It will come down 99% to what kind of experience you've managed to get. Seek as many internships/insight days/spring weeks as possible.

Thanks a lot for your reply. When I said keep my options open, it was more with regard to engineering as well as finance, as by the time I graduate I have no idea how the job market will be with regard to finance related jobs! Thanks a lot for your advice though!

Very helpful to know! Thanks a lot! I hear that getting internships at investment banks is extremely difficult though, would you have any advice on how to secure one? Thanks a lot! 👍

He literally said finance. But anyway degree is pretty close to irrelevant for getting a finance role. The only preference is STEM for S&T/quant roles.

Not 100% but I don't think it's that far if we're talking MO/BO roles.
