Intercontinental is on a distinguished road

If you are free now, I see no downside to studying for the ACCA.

I gather (but I may be wrong of course) that the technical skills you gain from an engineering degree will put you in good stead if you wish to do investment banking.

I am looking towards investment bankers but I've gathered the fact that it's extremely hard to get into front office. With regards to my degree, what should I pursue? I am interested in taking up NUS BBA or BBA(Accountancy) because I feel the 4 years allow me the time to learn and grow. I currently have a reserved place in NUS Chemical Engineering and after much detailed thinking, I realized the fact that I cannot see myself working at plant. Should I take ACCA now? Because I've the time and I realized now I can get a head start if I were to do ACCA. Overall, I am extremely interested in the areas of investment, banking&finance and other areas such as marketing etc. Please advice, and I hope to learn more from the seniors here.
