Hi. I’ve recently graduated with a 2:1 in Economics from Reading. I have 300 UCAS points (3 A-level plus 1 AS). 12 A-C GCSE’s.
Anyway as you would probably agree if I apply to any IB graduate job, I’m not going to get past the online application stage. Although my academic achievements aren’t amazing, I’m still only 20 years old. I am now planning on doing postgraduate studies to better my chances at getting the interviews at investment banks.
The masters I’ve applied for is MSc International Banking and Financial Services and another called MSc International Business and Finance. These are both at the Henley Business School, which from what I have been told is a well respected/prestigious place (obviously no Harvard) to do postgraduate studies of this type.
My question is, is do you think doing this will help me get to the interview stage? I have no problem in applying for graduate jobs in IB, as I’ll still be young.
