"I would say joining SIB was one of my best decisions I have made so far. The best part about the training at SIB was the course structure. It is very well designed so that even a fresher with no background in finance has the opportunity to complete the course with loads of knowledge and insight. The course is well tailored to make you job ready and fundamentally strong in the principles of Investment banking."
Paarshva, Engineering Fresher
"SIB was a really good learning opportunity and it helped me build on my knowledge and skill sets. It also helped me understand different valuation techniques, which I did not know much about prior to the course. SIB does not have a spoon feeding approach, which is very helpful. This approach helps you build your confidence and equips you with skills to survive in a very competitive and intensive work environment."

"I am glad that I got introduced to this course. When I started this course, I thought being an engineer and then working in a sales profile at a bank would make it tough for me to grasp all the concepts within short span of 9 weeks. But the structure of this course made sure that students like me from a non-finance background would be at par with other students right from the first week. Also, the simplified dissection of the topics and regular assignments were real highlights for me because they kept me engrossed in the world of high finance throughout this period and helped me to understand different on the job situations."
"SIB provided me a great platform to get into what I wanted to do - Investment Banking. They taught us basically what you have to do as an investment banking analyst and this helped me get learn new things and apply them using practical examples. With the help of their placement process, I was able to fulfill my dream of working for a bulge bracket investment bank at a very early stage of my career. The best part was the course content and the way it was taught. It basically covers most of what you will be doing when you join as an analyst and they provide lots of practice which helps you gain a lot of knowledge in the domain. Also, there was a lot of focus on tracking sectors and current events which gives a practical understanding of how the concepts work in real life and learn from the same. All these things contributed greatly in helping crack interview questions."
“Joining SIB was a very good decision. I improved my technical skills and gained a broad knowledge about the industry. It prepared me for job interviews and I got the break I needed in Investment Banking. I am very grateful to all the faculty members for giving each student personal attention and for putting the interests of students first and foremost. The course, unlike normal courses in finance was very practical. From creating profiles to conducting valuation analysis and financial modeling, everything was done in PPTs and excel. So this course was very interesting and it equipped me with the real world skills to start my career as an analyst. The trainers were also very helpful and were very attentive towards the progress of each student. They had very good knowledge about the industry and were flexible in their approach, to make the course interesting.”
DAVID, MSc FINANCE
“The best part was the course structure and the way faculty went about delivering world class practical training. The course covers the entire work schedule of an Investment Banking Analyst which along with plenty of practice is very helpful for any student. Also, there was a lot of focus on industry coverage and current global events which gives a practical understanding of how the concepts taught in the class work in real life scenarios. This along with the practical training - be it interview preparation, excel modeling, pitch book preparation or M&A deal profiles, helped me a lot during my interviews at bulge bracket banks.”
