Chemistry undergraduate to finance mscWatch this thread
Im planning to do Chemistry at warwick and am going into year 13. I find chem interesting, which is why im doing it, and the job prospects such as investment banking. However, i just wanted to ask whether i will be able to do a msc in finance or something related, after doing the chem degree. This is because im kind of worried that i may not land a job for investment banking after doing the chem degree. I was going to take a gap year after 13 before in order to do a level maths and apply to economics. Also, do you think i will be able to get analyst offers from top investment banks, such as goldman sachs, with a chem degree and a few internships and insight weeks. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you

As investment banks place such strong importance on work experience, to progress to a graduate scheme your chances of success will be greater if you've already undertaken an internship or work placement with them.
A bachelor's degree is the minimum educational qualification required to work as an investment banker. Entry-level analyst positions in the field are typically open to bachelor's degree graduates, and it is possible to move on to a senior banker role without a master's degree in many investment banks. Investment banks hire graduates from most subject areas.
