Young business owner trying a career change

Rank: Senior Chimp | 26

I own a small business that I can sell and want a career change to Wall Street. However I lack the experience and did not graduate from a prestigious school. ( I attended a D3 liberal arts school for 3 years before transferring to Kent state) my BA degree is not in finance. Are the IB courses worth it? what certificates should I go for? All advice is welcomed.
my neighbor is a former CEO of a small bank in Ohio who would help me if I asked but I want to save that as my last option.
