I don’t have the required coding skills, I intend to start with the C++ course. I want to work as a quant trader and would like your thoughts on the best programs for me.
I know my undergrad grades are not great and since it is a 3 year program , can put top US programs out of my reach.
What should I do to increase my chance getting admission in Top US programs.
If you are a commerce student you should forget about proper quant job! There is NOTHING that your commerce college has taught you that you will use in quant job. No good quant masters program will consider you!. Do stats from some good college and then you might get chance for consideration! Or just go for MBA/CA like all commerce person
