Are there any investment bankers who studied BAEcon and made it? Is the degree sought after by employers and is it a good degree to get a job in investment banking. I have an offer at University of Manchester and want to become an investment banker.

Sought after? By IBs, no not really. Is it possible to get in? Yeah. Is it gonna be tough? Probably.

Manchester is a non-target but it's one of the better non-targets.

What does tough actually mean? Needing to do more work ex/networking, generally struggling to get first rounds regardless, needing to consider alternate paths into IB more? I’m assuming it’s all of them compounded but jw to hear it from the source.

All of em except the networking cos networking is of limited use in the UK for getting IB summers.

Well it's not. It's definitely a top non-target though. As far as I've seen there are quite a few good societies go join at UoM too. I see a fair few people from Manc get decent gigs. Similar to Leeds in that respect.

>kinda confused how non-target recruiting works; if the people aren't a part of schemes like SEO/1000 black interns which can help bypass the target school thing, how do their CVs not get auto-filtered out for summers?

Well I have no idea. You can only look at the outcome of an unknown process. All I know is that they do get through.

I imagine it's something along the lines of not throwing out an application for the school name alone lol.
