IT intern-want to be a financial analyst, possible?

Hi

I am working as an industrial trainee in the IT Infrastructure dept. at UBS Asset mgmt. While working here, and doing a course called Investment Administration Qualification, I got very interested in Fund Management. I am currently doing another course called Investment Management Certificate, which I intend to finish by the end of August (before starting my final year at university). My question to anyone reading this is, considering the fact I am studying IT at university (I intend to get a first since its not a great university(Brunel)), do I have a future in fund Management? Will the buy-side firms even consider me as a candidate?

Would really appreciate any sort of feedback.

You'd need a relevent masters imo (NOT an MBA!)
