I am very interested in pursuing a career in investment banking, and I've been doing a lot of research and have some questions.
Currently I attend a smaller state school in Ohio (Kent State University), and study Business Management. I have just finished my first semester and plan on finishing my Freshman year here. After reading a few books and doing my best to research the field I have determined that the university I currently attend will not help push me into the industry. I know Ohio State is NOT a target school, but I also know it can help me secure better connections and looks better on a resume.
I will be majoring in finance at the Fisher College of Business. I looked into the Fisher Futures program and it definitely sparked interest. I was curious what the selectivity of this program is? Also, as I will be a transfer, will starting my Sophomore year there handicap me in any way?
I know it's a steep hill to climb and Ivy's and Targets always get priority, but do you think I can make my dream a reality? Thanks.
