Let me brief you about Investment banks first. Investment banking is divided into three broad areas, the front office, the middle office, and the back office.
The front office comprises the client facing roles like traders, mergers and acquisition analysts, underwriters etc.
The middle office consists of research and risk management roles like equity research analysts, risk managers etc.
The back office recruits employees for support roles who take up tasks like clearing and settlement processes, bookkeeping etc.
Now for you, if you are a graduate in finance (B.Com, BBA, BMS etc.), then you can do some certification courses and get into the back office roles. You won't be recruited for the middle or front office roles. If you are an engineering graduate, then also you have a chance of getting recruited for back-office roles.
If you have an MBA, then you can apply for the middle office roles. For the front-office roles, you will need an MBA from a premier institute.
The following articles will provide you with some details about how you can get into investment banking as a graduate.
