Degree decision

Hi, 

I'm an incoming Engineering student and I have made up my mind to pursue a career in finance. I have the option of doing three years and four years. Given I know what I want, should I stay for three years to obtain Beng Qualification or do the four years to achieve Meng Qualification? Will there be any detriment in future if I graduate with Beng?

Thanks for your responses.

No - Engineering degree can give you more flexibility, if you end up not choosing to pursue finance. Try to get involved in finance clubs, do masters in finance or supplement your Beng with CFA. I have an engineering background as well and broke into finance. You can too.
