I am new to this forum and well, quite frankly new to a lot of things regarding finance. So, what I wanted to talk about is tips/advice for undergraduate students like myself looking to get into a Financial Analyst career.
I am currently an incoming sophomore at DePaul University and switched my major a couple weeks ago from Actuarial Science to Econ with a Math minor. Now, I have a decently strong math background but I want to switch my aspirations from actuarial science to the world of finance. I leaned towards economics because it just is more interesting to me and is something I would want to study more in-depth. I've taken two introductory accounting courses, calculus 1-3, and micro/macroeconomics. What should I be doing currently in order to prepare, other than the obvious such as networking and taking relevant courses in school? I am taking MS Office courses this summer as well as Python and various others.
I'm sure this forum gets a lot of these, but just hoping for some input from anybody really.
