Did you happen to watch The Wolf of Wall Street and think, perhaps this is for me? Do you consider yourself good with numbers?

If you are, then read on as we help you decide if you should invest your time in the career of banking.

While a career in banking is not exactly like what was portrayed in the movies, it does, however, open wide doors of possibilities.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Banking course?

Good with numbers

Picture this: when you’re out with your friends, and one of you finally calls for the bill. While everyone else whips out their phones to launch calculator, to divide the bill among yourselves you calculate everything in your head and spilt it evenly before anyone else can finishes keying in the numbers. The best part? You’re never wrong. Does this sound like you (Okay, making a mistake or two is fine!) Basically, numbers are second nature to you, and they pose no problems.

Eye for detail

If you’re a detail-oriented person, you pay attention to the little things. That means you may like sharp creases in your jeans and crisp shirts, but it goes beyond attire or an obsession with making lists. It means you’re conscientious and focused on accuracy and precision. You pride yourself on being a perfectionist. You’re also patient and persistent in pursuing answers to challenging questions.

Inquisitive

Let’s say you’re sitting on the couch lazily, scrolling through your phone and come across an ad for the latest iPhone. While everyone else either jumps to the price or to their parents to find out if they can afford one, you’re curious as to what’s new to warrant the exorbitant price. You dig deeper, into every facet of what makes it tick, and find out how that works. You’re obsessed about quenching your thirst for knowledge, all because your curious. Thankfully, you’re not cat.

Visionary

While everyone just wings it, and takes it a day at a time, without a real plan, you have set goals you want to achieve throughout the day. Why? Because you have a vision of what your life will be like 5-10 years down the road, and you know exactly what you need to do to get there.
