'm an undergraduate currently studying at Reading University, Henley Business School - 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?
