Hello! I go to a semi-target with 3.4 GPA and majoring in finance. After doing an IB stint in an emerging market, I began to seriously question what a college education can do for someone going into IB. Besides just getting a piece of paper to show prospective employers, I really want my undergraduate days to mean something and ultimately get into IB/PE.
After some soul searching, I was thinking of 3 paths. (1) Do a major with a 'macro' perspective (eg. Pol Sci, Econs, Philosophy, Math) to complement a 'micro' finance perspective (2) Do a second major in STEM for the academic rigor and critical thinking. (3) Take multiple classes in a variety of disciplines (think liberal arts). Or maybe I should (sadly) just focus on getting my GPA abv 3.5 increase my chances of getting into IB
Thanks in advance! I appreciate any response or thoughts on this :)
