Skills with numbers and compiling data are essential in investment fund management work, so be sure to take as many math classes as possible. Accounting, business, economics, and computer classes are helpful. Strong knowledge of computer software programs, such as financial analysis and risk management software, is important, so take computer classes. English and speech classes will help hone the research, writing, and speaking skills required for presenting investment recommendations.
