Welcome to Investment Banking University

It’s unique because the university is entirely dedicated to front office skills like coverage, origination, and deal making rather than deal support skills like financial modeling and valuation. It’s special because students actually learn the capabilities that front office investment bankers use to make their money and start applying these concepts to advance their investment banking career.

The big benefit is that it helps students and professionals define a path to building a career in investment banking rather than simply pursuing the 80 hours a week analyst route. This helps them avoid interviewing for a job having never done the actual work.

Investment Banking University makes it easy to learn the actual capabilities of the client facing investment banker. Currently, all investment banking training is dedicated to teaching deal support skills like financial modeling and valuation. This leaves students and professionals with a skill gap between themselves and what it actually takes to originate and do deals in investment banking. By eliminating the skill gap, Investment Banking University creates a place where students and professionals can secure their career in investment banking.
