As you can tell from my name, I went to georgetown as well and was in the College actually - work in IB right now. Normally I don't post on these things but figured I would here becuase I was a transfer as well. Don't worry about being in the College or MSB - as long as you get involved in finance-related clubs (I wasn't really, actually) or have a somewhat finance-y major (Econ, PECO, etc.) (I also didn't), you should be fine. I've heard that they actually prefer College students sometimes because we have a more well-rounded experience in college. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or just want to chat - I transferred in as a sophomore and recently graduated in the past few years. Hoya Saxa! Welcome to the family

Georgetown (Originally Posted: 12/05/2009)

Hi,

I was wondering how Georgetown College & Business School placed at NYC BB IBD?

Would I be at a disadvantage for IBD recruitment if I was an Economics major in Georgeown College as oppose to Finance major at Georgetown MSB?

Thanks to anyone who helps.

the very top MSB kids will get jobs at NY BB banks (primarily IBD, GCM, S&T). However, what will matter a lot is your summer job b/w jr and senior year. You can be an art history major but if you have work experience and finance clubs, good grades etc. you will get a first round interview and a chance to tell your story. There are certainly ways to make yourself stand out as a non-MSB student. Two of the most successful strategies are pursuing a double major in the college (econ/math or econ/gov or something similar) and getting the Baker Scholar distinction (important) OR an international economics or international political economy major in the SFS with the Intl. Business honors certificate (the recruiters, especially if they went to G'town, know it's the best/hardest school there).

That being said, the only real disadvantage of not going MSB is that you need to do a lot of self study for the interview process as you won't have any typical financial classes (you won't know how to build a DCF or how the financial statements flow and react to one another without learning outside of your classes).
