The banking and financial services sector is large with several opportunities for growth. A bachelor’s degree in finance or business related field is required to get into the banking and financial services jobs. But in recent years, the graduate job market has become increasingly fierce, and standing out amongst all the other recent graduates is tough. While few accept that it will take some years to climb the career ladder, others are taking an alternative and most effective route – a postgraduate degree.
You will acquire knowledge at a higher level during your postgraduate degree, than what you studied during your bachelor’s degree.
A postgraduate degree will help you develop necessary skills required in the industry, and securing a decent job is more likely. It will also leave you feeling confident that the time and money invested in your postgraduate education was worth it.
Some universities offer work experience as part of postgraduate programmes, which will provide you with valuable insights into working in that environment and help you develop your professional network. Also, there are programmes which guarantees a job placement at the beginning of the programme; one such innovative programme is offered at SRM AP University.
