Considering going into IB but I’m at a liberal arts college with no finance/accounting classes. Any advice and/or resources suggestions so I can break into IB? (Btw I’m an Econ & math major so I don’t think I’m entirely hopeless)

What's your past job experience/any experience that can compensate for the difference?

What are some relevant skills you have acquired through your studies that can be applied to finance/accounting?

Summer 2021, I did an internship at a small financial planning/insurance company. Fall 2021 I did a remote internship with a startup that ranks S&P 100 companies on ESG related topics. This summer, I’m doing an internship at deloitte. Currently recruiting for IB for summer 2023

I’ve fast tracked both of my majors so for econ, I’m through all the micro/macro/econometrics classes and will be taking econ electives next fall. Similarly for math, I’m through multi/Lin alg/diff eq and am currently taking number theory. I’m a very fast learner and anything math-y or econ-y (or anything analytical) is very intuitive for me

If it helps at all, I will be taking a managerial finance class at MIT next fall (bc Wellesley can cross register with MIT). The only issue is that recruiting for summer 2023 is happening now and atm I don’t have a lot of finance/accounting knowledge :/
