Wall Street’s Biggest Bank Hires More Than Just Business Majors

JPMorgan’s Asia-Pacific unit targeted scientists, mathematicians and engineers for 2018

JPMorgan Chase & Co. is hiring more engineering, neuroscience and psychology graduates across Asia-Pacific as it seeks to adapt its workforce to the region’s fast-changing economies. Of the roughly 1,000 graduates who will start in JPMorgan’s class of 2018 this June, 39 percent have degrees in subjects other than business or finance, the highest proportion in data going back three years.
