Investment Banking Immersion (IBI)
Providing real-world investment banking experience to students in an academic environment.
Analyzing actual transactions and developing new business pitches for CEOs are just two of the many ways that students apply the practices they learn through the IBI immersion. Students acquire a unique, firsthand, and comprehensive understanding of the investment banking industry, along with a range of technical skills that position them for success and set them apart from their peers.
Students enrolled in this immersion will have the opportunity to learn from first-rate faculty, visit Wall Street firms, analyze landmark transactions, get advice from senior clients, and be coached and critiqued by top investment bankers, week in and week out, for a full semester. IBI’s dynamic curriculum includes:
- IBI Practicum
- Theory-based courses in accounting, modeling, operations, and analytics
- Electives such as valuation, governance, financial policy, restructuring tax, and more
