Good business programs for investment banking? What schools to go too, in Canada?
Most high schoolers do not even know what investment banking is, let alone read about the financial markets (WSJ, G&M, etc) and are attracted to it because of the high salary and bonus. A large majority of those high schoolers are lazy and think that they can easily break into IB and coast, while racking up the big bucks. Let me assure you - that is not the case.IB is a grind and if you're struggling getting 90+, you will struggle meeting the IB GPA cutoffs (top 20% of class - around 3.7/4.3). Got a 95? Not so fast, because a 95 in high school may not mean much in university (especially if you bought your marks somewhere). AND THEN.... Networking, learning outside of school, etc is also a lot of time commitment. TLDR; a lot of high schoolers want to do I-Banking but don't want to put any effort into it. By the time you get through 1st and 2nd years, the lazy get put in their place.
