Investment Banking Club
Where Knowledge and Passion Synergize
Investment Banking Club (IBC) provides its members with the essential knowledge to break into the world of Mergers and Acquisitions in an investment bank. The IBC brings transparency to this notoriously opaque industry and helps students develop superior career skills in a collaborative community.
We apply the knowledge acquired during the Main Meetings to the real-world M&A cases, prepare our members to the IBC M&A Case Competition. Consequently, our members develop multivariable thinking and acting skills and grow personally and professionally with the Finance Industry and beyond.
The IBC provides a crash course into the M&A division of investment banking with one lecture per week during. Lectures are given by our experienced members who have worked in the industry or are completing a degree in finance or economics.
Don’t worry if you do not know anything about finance or economics! The crash course is designed for anyone from any degree who has an interest towards finance.
Although prior knowledge is not expected, the crash course is challenging as it covers topics relatively quickly. The course discusses both quantitative and qualitative aspects of the industry. A high knowledge of mathematics is not required.
Topics covered in crash course:
Investment Banking 101, The Basics
The Three Financial Statements
Discounted Cash Flow Model
CV and Interview tips
Lecture slides will be available on the Resources page shortly after each meeting.
During the second semester the IBC will keep conducting weekly reading groups.
The weekly reading groups will discuss current deals and provide platform to become more familiar with the current market trends.
Moreover, we will conduct the annual M&A competition, which will provide participants with the hands-on M&A experience and opportunity to receive a prize.
Be sure to regularly check your email inbox for our news letters and follow us on Facebook (IBC 20/21) for more information on the case competition!
