Finance, Accounting or Business Administration. All three degrees can position you be considered for this type of role in a banking or a credit union organization.

I would suggest a Finance/Accounting degree at a 2 year or 4 year college. Mix in other coursework/classes in psychology, marketing and management as those will be helpful to you as well. Check-in with the bank you are interested in working work in the future and see if they have an special requirements, then complete them.

Good luck on your Banking journey.

Simeon’s Answer

You are probably looking at a degree in finance or accounting. You can often major in one of those and minor in the other as part of a bachelors of business administration degree, but it will depend on the specific institution you attend.

When you are able to start working, see if you can get a job as a teller at a small bank or credit union. You will get much more practical experience at a smaller institution and might find some opportunities for yourself to move up. Either way, I would recommend making friends with your coworkers and keeping up with them. If you are looking to become a manager, the sooner you can start building friendships with people in the industry, the better. You'll likely need a degree in accounting or finance, but not necessarily. Keep networking with your fellow students throughout school and then try to land a good internship in banking and network there as well. It's not uncommon to get hired by a company that gave you an internship in the past, so try to keep that relationship going.

Great info but it doesn't directly answer the student's question. Is there a specific type of degree you would recommend for them to reach their goals? Gurpreet Lally, CareerVillage.org Team

I would recommend something in finance, accounting, business, or economics if you want to be a bank manager. Keep in mind that you should still study what you're interested in, as a lot of jobs in professional world are completely unrelated to people's college degrees.

Hi Aishwarya,

I'd say Economics or Business are your best bet.
