Financial Institution Officers and Managers
You will need at least a bachelor's degree if you want to work
as a financial institution officer or manager. While you are in
high school, therefore, you should take classes that will give you
a solid preparation for college. Such classes include mathematics,
such as algebra and geometry, science, history, and a foreign
language. Take English courses to improve your researching,
writing, and communication skills. Also, take computer classes.
Computer technology is an integral part of today's financial world,
and you will benefit from being familiar with this tool. Finally,
if your high school offers classes in economics, accounting, or
finance, be sure to take these courses. The course work will not
only give you an opportunity to gain knowledge but will also allow
you to see if you enjoy working with numbers and theories.
