Investment Banking Network

Investment Banking Workshop

The Investment Banking Workshop is an exclusive program that is a combination of traditional corporate finance and accounting courses with a practitioner’s approach teaching students how to “play the game of investment banking”. Sophomores are admitted late in the spring semester, and have intense focus on the financial services industry, the practice of investment banking, and the analyst's role in the investment banking process.

For the capstone of a junior’s experience, completed in the spring semester, alumni teach students how to achieve high performance during the summer internship. Seniors focus on career management techniques promoting the student’s ability to accelerate and enhance career development, as well as wealth creation tactics and strategies. Seniors, post-internship, become leaders, coaches, and mentors of younger students.

“ Having now worked as a Managing Director with multiple investment banks, including HSBC, Deutsche Bank, Continental Bank & Trust, and now at Citigroup, I have had the opportunity to compare Kelley School undergraduates against students from other fine universities working at multiple firms. The skills students develop in the Investment Banking Network at the Kelley School are second to none, and the performance of these young professionals is most often higher than their peer group. In addition to Kelley School student's competitive drive for success, their mid-western work ethic set them apart from students and young professionals from other universities. ”
