Investment Banking Academy

We help launch your career in investment banking

If you have a passion for investment banking, we have a program to help you build a satisfying and successful career in the field. Our goal in the Investment Banking Academy is to prepare students to secure full-time positions with premier investment banking firms.

We do it by providing mentorship, technical skill development, and case competition experiences that accelerate your knowledge of the field and advance your preparation for interviews and internships—all of which helps you land that dream job.

It’s a collaborative experience, with upperclass members of the Academy guiding newly selected sophomore members and with all members benefiting from the advice of Gies alumni and other professionals as well as our Career Services team. Our Margolis Market Information Lab also provides hands-on experience with state-of-the-art investment banking software tools.

Investment banking is an incredibly interesting and intense career. Through the Academy, we ensure you have a training program that readies you for the future.
