As Banking and Investment Management are related fields, it can be beneficial to those seeking a career in these fields to cover some banking and investment concepts and topics in one degree. This will provide a strong foundation to enable graduates to operate responsibly and successfully in the general banking, private banking, investment banking and investment management environment at a junior level.

The qualification will function as articulation into a Postgraduate Diploma in Investment Management/Banking, which most financial institutions require for a further career in the sector. As the course curriculum offers some investment modules, it will also assist with the preparation for the CFA Level 1 exam.

CAREERS

The banking sector has evolved into an industry that employs highly skilled individuals. Today, degreed individuals are preferred for many entry-level jobs and an undergraduate degree is no longer sufficient to climb the career ladder further. Solid knowledge in advanced banking concepts and how a bank operates as a business are required at a minimum. Apart from this, specialized knowledge of different areas of banking and analytical/research skills are expected from candidates applying for jobs in more senior roles. Both industries - banking and investment – have evolved into industries that offer a highly regulated, fast-paced and challenging job environment. Staff requires a degree in order to embark on a career in banking or to enter the investment management environment. Although other bachelor degrees are accepted, banks and investment houses tend to prefer commerce graduates with specialization in Banking and/or Investment. From there on, to climb the career ladder further, Postgraduate or Honours qualifications are needed.
