finance degree

hi im in year 12 and I want to do a finance and economics degree in order to work in a corporate bank. im leaning towards trading but also investment banking. I got told I should do physics at uni (I do it for levels) as it's in demand for finance but I don't know if I really want to continue with physics. can anyone tell me if a finance and Econ degree is worth it and im just stressing ?
Hi @Nush54.
I think it is worth it to study a Finance degree for sure. I did some online research and found out some interesting facts. Many jobs in finance offer high salaries and growth potential, making it a lucrative career choice. With a Finance degree you can pursue diverse career opportunities: You can also work in various roles and industries, from investment banking to risk management to financial planning.

Does any of those feel attractive to you?
