What is an investment Banking Analyst?
I want to become an Investment Banking Analyst, and then eventually an Associate after that. Starting salaries for analysts with a bachelor’s degree range from $65-100,000 in San Francisco. Analysts make deals and transactions with companies (selling, buying, investing, etc.), pitch to companies to eventually make those transactions, and do a bunch of other, random, administrative stuff along the way.
How do I become one?
While analysts only require a bachelor’s degree, to become an associate, one needs to get an Master's in Business Administration (sometimes paid for by the company they’re working for). Degrees required being an analyst have to do with mathematics, like accounting or economics, but also business management degrees, political science, engineering, or more.
