Investment Banking

A career in Investment Banking is highly rewarding. This course has been curated after discussions with investment bankers who have advised companies on a broad range of transactions involving mergers, acquisitions, IPO, joint-ventures, carve-out etc

The course is taught by faculty who have trained more than 50,000 students over 20 years. The focus is on teaching how to apply the concepts rather than understanding just the theoretical framework. There are more than many jobs in this field but finding skilled people is difficult. Most people have a high-level view of banking instead of the industry knowledge to close a deal.
