Choose to specialize in Finance for a career in “Investment Banking”. “Finance Majors study financial and accounting information, economic models and analytic techniques that can be applied to financial problems. They learn to determine prices of assets such as stocks and businesses to manage assets to maximize their economic values”, states The College Board Guide to College Majors. After your bachelors degree you could consider pursuing a international CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) certification. The CFA is a recognized qualification and will strengthen your profile if you are keen on working abroad. You can apply for the CFA online. Applicants are required to have a US equivalent Bachelors degree or 4 years of professional work experience or a combination of both, while applying for the CFA.January 2, 2015 at 2:39 pm #14604
