Course Description

Investment banking remains the most desirable and prestigious career option for the world's most talented graduates. Such qualities make the competition for places extremely fierce. InvestIN has used the combined knowledge of over 20 top investment banking professionals to create the world's first online programme to teach you BOTH the hard skills, soft skills AND specific recruitment techniques it takes to break into a top tier investment bank.

Our executives have all successfully gone through the gruelling recruitment process, and are now actively involved in recruiting graduates at their respective banks. We will show you that getting your dream job in investment banking is not just a matter of luck, but of preparation, technique and forward thinking. We do this in two key stages; first, we give you an in-depth understanding of both Sales & Trading and Corporate Finance, so that you gain the advanced technical knowledge you require during interviews. Second, we train you to achieve excellence at every stage of the recruitment process - networking with professionals, writing the perfect application form, taking control in interviews, and blowing away the competition in assessment centres.

Instructor Biography

InvestIN Education, A Head Start in the City

WE AIM TO TRANSFORM RAW TALENT AND CURIOSITY INTO REFINED PROFESSIONALISM AND IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE INDUSTRY…

InvestIN was formed by a group of City professionals, with the purpose of closing the gap between school and the City. Over the past decade, we have seen a significant increase in competitiveness amongst City careers – the number of graduate positions is simply not increasing at the same speed as the number of graduates. This has resulted in a greater enthusiasm amongst students to start obtaining practical experience at an earlier age, as well as boost their internship applications. Our mission is to equip these students with the skills and knowledge that they cannot gain elsewhere, to help them achieve their true potential.
