Hey guys i'm starting university next year, looking to get ultimately into the finance industry. Not sure where yet its a pretty massive industry. I'm thinking investment banking/venture capital, ultimate goal of a hedge fund. Like every other guy right
So i'm going to do a BA in commerce, thinking double major in Finance and Actuarial Science.
I thought Actuarial Science would be a different angle and valued as everything comes down to risk management. Although i don't want to be an actuary.
Out of accounting, economics, finance, actuarial science, math what is the most useful or most highly regarded combination?
Ultimately im planning on trying to finish up with a masters/PHD in America. Is a masters/PHD necessary?
Would appreciate any advice/comments around courses to take and getting into the industry.
