I have a strong interest in making the attempt to break into Investment Banking, such as M&A and. Since I go to a non-target school, I believe this will be a challenge. I am a sophomore doubling in Finance and Public Accounting with a minor in Econ, and hold a 3.7 GPA. My extra curricular activities include Acting Director of Finance at my fraternity, member of American Red Cross Club and hopeful future treasurer, and I also have future plans of becoming an RA at my school. I am also in the process of creating a finance/stock investment club at my school with several of my peers. I have recently been selected to work on a research project with a professor in our accounting and finance department that take place over the course of the next two years, and will be presented in Chicago in 2017, to the North American Accounting Society, with high hopes that our work will be published.
I will be interning at the United States Department of Treasury: Fiscal Service starting this summer, which will continue throughout college if I so choose. The internship will involve me analyzing complex financial transactions, generation of financial reports and models, decision making and taking proper actions for transactions, ensuing compliance with certain regulations, and reviewing accuracy and making necessary adjustments.
Does anyone have any advice? Do I stand a legitimate shot breaking into the IB world?
