    Hi I am planning to apply for IB this year and I feel as if my degree does not portray the finance knowledge which I have accumulated whilst reading books etc therefore I was wondering if there was any qualifications I could take alongside my masters that would show that I actually know a bit of finance as well, for example I was looking at the CFA Level 1 exam but from what I have gathered it is mainly used in the US, if anyone can give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

    you have interviews and cv space to convince them of your knowledge. not many peoples degrees offer instant confirmation that they know anything about banking.

    thanks for the reply, to convince them of your knowledge at the interview stage I would first have to get my foot in the door hence why I asked the question, it does not need to be a high level qualification like an MSc or anything?
