Wealth Management Managing Directors

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Most WM firms prefer to hire wealth managers who attended an Ivy League college or other elite university, so be sure to work hard in high school in order to earn stellar grades that will increase your chances of being accepted by a top college. In high school, take classes in business, economics, accounting, statistics, and mathematics. Managing directors need strong communication skills so take as many English and speech classes as possible—and join your school’s debate club. Other recommended classes include computer science, history, social studies, and foreign language.
