Education and Training Requirements

High School

The field of investor relations requires a unique combination of soft skills (especially communication) and financial acumen. As a result, it’s important to take classes that will help you to develop these talents. Recommended courses include English, speech, marketing, accounting, finance, business, economics, and mathematics. Round out your education with college-preparatory classes in history, social studies, and computer science. Taking a foreign language will be of great help if you plan to work overseas or at a PE firm that works with foreign investors.
