I developed a pretty keen interest in math maybe a tad late into my college career after declaring a dual degree in econ and business administration. Funny thing is my school is definitely known for STEM, but because I'm almost done with both of these majors, I am not totally sure I want to stay longer to complete a pure STEM-degree. The courses I took in econ were proof-based and very math heavy, but honestly am not sure how having a STEM degree would hold up at a place like/Two Sigma/ . I am extremely interest in all of the work at these places, but have not a single personal connection. Was just wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get even just to first round without a math background.
I was lucky to intern at an economic consulting firm with pretty demanding modeling due to my CS and math courses, but working as a quant trader requires a totally different level. I'm continuing to self study as I work, but of course, that's nothing like having a pure stem degree. Would really appreciate any advice.
