Investment Banking School & Boot Camp
INVESTMENT BANKING SEMINAR CURRICULUM
The Investment Banking Institute offers the Investment Banking Bootcamp as a unique form of intense, comprehensive training for those seeking a position or advancement in their investment banking career or one of the many related Wall Street professions, from private equity and venture capital, to hedge funds and private wealth management. The Investment Banking Bootcamp’s training begins with an overview of investment banking practice, including the relationship between investment banking and the other investment institutions on and off Wall Street
. The investment banking seminar’s focus on the fundamental skills of financial analysis and, particularly, valuation, mean that the seminar then turns to training in financial statement analysis. This is the first step in building a financial model with the purpose of valuing a security and its underlying business. Different valuation methods are taught, with an emphasis on understanding how to choose the best valuation method for each particular situation. The course’s main theme, financial model building, leads next to the study of how to incorporate further information into a financial model so that it can be used to assess the potential value a business and its securities under hypothetical circumstances that may arise in the future, e.g., after a merger or in the event of a major change in the relevant industry. The process of mastering complex financial modeling in the investment banking seminar also involves learning to incorporate several businesses within the same industry into one model so that a comparative company analysis can be undertaken. The financial model building component of the Investment Banking Bootcamp culminates with students learning to build a leveraged buy out model (LBO model) and a merger and acquisition model (M&A model). This is the ultimate test of one’s financial model building skills, as these are some of the most complex financial models in use. The next stage of the investment banking seminar is to study how these financial models are put to use once they are completed in an investment bank; the process of pitching is covered here. Finally, the investment banking seminar closes with a segment on interviewing and resume building.
This curriculum is applicable to those seeking a position in a private equity firm, a hedge fund, or in any of the many financial analysis positions providing careers on Wall Street. The reason for this is that an investment banking job requires the utmost knowledge of the finance industry and its practices, from financial modeling to assessing the viability of a business model. Thus, the curriculum of the investment banking seminar serves as a most thorough industry-focused education offered to those seeking financial careers.
HOW DOES THE INVESTMENT BANKING SEMINAR WORK?
The Investment Banking Bootcamp combines the ideal characteristics of a lecture, discussion group and practicum. The investment bankers who teach the course are highly experienced and established within the industry. These course leaders provide comprehensive structured instruction throughout the investment banking seminar, which ensures maximization of the information content during the course. However, there is also constant opportunity for discussion during the Investment Banking Institute’s seminar, which provides students with the opportunity to make sure that they understand the material covered. Furthermore, the seminar format of the Investment Banking Bootcamp means that students must participate heavily, both in the financial model building and other activities undertaken during seminar, and also by doing extended homework pertinent to the activities during seminar. This leads to an environment in which students are not only obtaining information about investment banking practice, they are mastering methods, such as building the leveraged buy out model, and how to employ them in real investment banking transactions.
