^^^^^ Sorry about the title of the post (typo) it should read "Physics Major to Finance Related Career" I've a BSc in Physics at the moment; majoring in Experimental Physics and minoring in Mathematical Physics. I wanted to know how hard would it be for a physics major like me to transfer to a finance related career. Should I change my minor to statistic or just leave it as Mathematical Physics? Also, I found out that it is possible for me to apply to a Masters program in Quantitative Finance (as long as I have a good degree) as a possible conversion course into finance. However, how good would this option be to help get me a decent job in finance and would there be more preference give to a person with a Finance degree rather than a person with a Physics degree and a Finance masters. Further, would it be more acceptable to have a Ph.D on top of this? Is there anyone here who has experience or knows of someone with experience in a simular situation.
