Need Advice on MBA Route into IB
Alright so I am a science major junior at University of Alberta in Canada with a 3.9GPA. I have no financial experience as I was going for medicine, but starting last year I was interested in finance and started to take Econ and finance classes available, I really want to pursue investment banking now, but since I decided so late I have no internships for my junior summer. I have a few questions:
1) Would it be possible for me to take a 5th year of studying and try to get an internship between my 4th and 5th year? Or would banks not consider me for it since I'm not technically a junior.
2) if the first option isn't possible, I'm assuming the MBA route is my only chance, problem is I will need lots of work experience in finance to get into a top Finance MBA programs I'm looking at, what finance type work could I even get with a science degree?
Thank you, appreciate any advice on this, I know my possibilities of getting in are slim but I'm willing to try my hardest.
