Question: What courses should I take in order for I to be an investment banker.  Should I major in finance if I want to be an investment banker?  Is accounting an important course related to investment banking?

Answer: Sean, I believe you’re on the right track!  I would definitely recommend that you study finance if you want to become an investment banker.  Accounting is indeed important in the study of finance and you will see that the finance concentration in our BSBA program includes a few accounting courses such as Managerial Accounting and Financial Statement Analysis.  Good luck! http://www.nyit.edu/management/undergraduate/business_admin/finance/
