A university degree in business administration, commerce, computer science or other discipline related to the service provided is usually required. Several years of experience as a middle manager in financial, communications or other business services are usually required. A bachelor's degree in finance, accounting, or a related field is the minimum academic preparation, but many employers increasingly seek graduates with a master's degree.

Financial credentials like CFP, CA, CGA, CMA, CFA etc. can all add a competitive edge and are increasingly pursued by serious career-focused individuals (almost an entry requirement for advancement in the financial industry). There is no real substitute for hard work, expertise and learning about banking from the ground up.
