Will doing a Masters in Invest Mgt help to overcome my weak A-Level Grades when applying to an Invest. Bank ?
Back to Career Advice forum
'm an undergraduate currently studying at Reading University, Henley
Business School UK- doing my 3rd year work placement abroad in Brussels
at Ingram Micro Inc. (finance dept). I'm predicted an Upper Second
Class Honours Degree.
I speak 3 languages - English, French & German.
I am strongly considering doing the Investment Management Course on offer at the ICMA Centre in Reading, UK.
If successful I'd end up with:
CFA Level 1,
ICMA IFID certificate.
With the 1 year work experience in accountancy, my languages abilities,
and the subsequent qualifications from the Msc Course - would that put
me in a decent position for applying to Banks like Goldmans, UBS,
JPMorgan etc... ????
I feel my only weakness is my A-Level grades which amount to 300 UCAS pts.
Would a good degree + Msc mark give me a good chance at getting into a
graduate entry level programme at somewhere like Goldmans?
300 UCAS pts = BBC at A-Level + a C in the other AS Level.
I also only achieved a 2:2 in my 1 st year at University - however it does NOT AT ALL count towards my final degree mark.
