Education and Training Requirements

High School

In high school, take accounting, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and other finance classes, as well as statistics and mathematics. Database management classes will help you learn how to collect and manage information. Any class that teaches you how to conduct research and assess information will be a good building block for a career in private equity. Strong communication skills are necessary to write reports and effectively debate the merits of potential investments, so be sure to take as many speech and English classes as possible. Participation in mathematics, finance, and debate clubs and contests also provide good hands-on experience.
