<p>I'm currently at the University of Scranton in Northeastern Pennsylvania, because its local and they gave me a large amount of money. I came here as a pre med student, but after taking micro and macro economics I've come to realize I like economics a lot more than the sciences so I'm switching my major to finance. I also know that in the business world, the prestige of a school matters a lot so I'm looking at transferring to Syracuse University. My question is does Syracuse have a good reputation of getting students a job on Wall Street? Also, if I stay where I'm at do I still have a chance to get onto Wall Street if I excel? Thank you</p>
<p>Contact Syracuse’s career office and ask them if banks come to campus to recruit and how many grads go to investment banks per year.
The easiest way to get into IB is through campus recruiting. </p>
<p>I went to Syracuse for undergrad. The school is going to be easier to break into finance from than say Scranton, but not as easy as say UVA, Duke, Michigan, Georgetown, etc etc. </p>
<p>If you go to Syracuse and want to work in finance I suggest you do everything possible to get into the Orange Value Fund. It is Syracuse’s version of Indiana’s investment banking club. Essentially a select few who get pipelined into internships and jobs. I was one of the founding members of it and have seen it grow immensely. </p>
<p>I’ve worked in finance in one form or another since graduating and the alumni presence is great. SU has a ton of alumni working in finance in every major city. Having a great sports tradition really helps bond people. I enjoyed my time there and am an active alumnus.</p>
