On the ‘What you really need to be an Investment Banker’ forum, it states that you need to go to the top 5 universities to have the best shout. What are these top 5 universities?
UK we’re probably talking Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, Warwick…
In my opinion the statement isn’t really true. It’s 2017 and Banks are more open to considering applications from various academic backgrounds, some even proactively.
Standard Chartered, for example, don’t even ask for your University details on their application forms… they judge applicants almost entirely on the results from their online psychometric tests.
