<p>What are the best majors to get into IB with?
Is it just finance and econ? because I read on one of the other forums that they look at philosophy majors too because they know how to think. I want to go to Yale and major in either math and philosophy, econ and philosophy, or do the EPE program</p>

<p>engineering is also a good major for IB.</p>

<p><em>sigh</em> if you want to join IBD at an investment bank it does not matter what you major in.</p>

<p>If you want to do S&T, it is beneficial to have taken courses in multi-variable calculus, statistics, probability and will find that certain desks, such as structuring, tend to have a large concentration of math, engineering, physics and economics majors. while others have a greaer variety due to a lessened focus on higher level math.</p>

<p>You will find majors ranging from sociology all the way to engineering in IBD and S&T at a Bulge Bracket investment bank.</p>

<p>a van halen fan, diamondDave?</p>

<p>What's IBD and S&T?</p>

<p>I would probably say something like Finance/Economics/Accounting etc something along those lines.</p>

<p>Investment Banking Division and Sales & Trading. It does seem like BB's will take any major from a good school with a good GPA. Majay's post probably accurate.</p>

<p>'s a pretty good band. He's also from my home state (Indiana) and I was listening to them when I made the name</p>

<p>make sure you have math</p>

<p>I'm a PoliSci/Philosophy double major at a top target school. Is this ok for IB?</p>

<p>I just need some reassurance because whenever I talk about it with my friends, it's always ECON ECON ECON.</p>

<p>It always seems to be econ, because it is self-selecting.</p>

<p>However, as a summer analyst, I worked with others who had degrees ranging from Sociology to Engineering.</p>
