Banking with a Masters in Mathematics?

<p>Hello all,</p>

<p>I have a BS in Mathematics and I'm currently in my first year (second semester) of a Masters in Mathematics at a regular state school in which I will graduate in 2 more semesters.</p>

<p>I have studied math just because I like it and was planning on going for my Phd just because I didnt have any other career-specific goals in my mind and figured obtaining more education never hurts and I'm young (21) so I don't have to hurry etc.</p>

<p>Thing is, I have an uncle who works for a bank as a vice-president of treasury and investment or something along those lines. He contacted me because he found out I was about to finish my masters in math and wanted to help me etc.</p>

<p>He told me he could help me get an internship this summer (by using his position and pull some strings is my guess) so I could get a taste of the banking world and so I could "get a taste of how all the math I knew is applied in the real world" (his words) and then after the internship and the extra year I need to finish my masters, get a full time position. All this interests me very much.</p>

<p>My worry is, and I have told him, I have no knowledge or experience whatsoever on finance/economics/banking etc and I wonder how it is all going to play out when I'm interviewed.</p>

<p>Is it possible to get in the banking world only with math knowledge? What do I say in an interview? "I know the math, just give me the opportunity to learn the banking part"?</p>
