Hey there, my name is Michael Herlache MBA. I'm the founder of Investment Banking University.
Investment Banking University was founded in order to close the skill gap of the investment banking front office. All current investment banking training is focused on the quantitative skills of financial modeling & valuation, the responsibility of the analyst and associate. Previously, there has been no front office investment banking training which teaches the primary work of the IB front office including coverage, mandate/target matching, origination, deal structuring and the M&A process.
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.
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.
