Since you're here it is perhaps safe to assume that you aspire for a career in Investment Banking, Corporate Finance, Equity Research or Private Equity. Lets call it Option 1
But more importantly, in the pursuit of Option 1 are you willing to do whatever it takes to break in and then move up and rise through the ranks? Is that you?
Then perhaps you could be a good fit for SIB's flagship Investment Banking Course
“The best part about the course was the amount of effort that was put into providing us with a job placement. Even after the classes had finished, SIB continued to work very hard. It is extremely important to have someone fighting to get your CV on top of the pile and I am grateful to have had SIB on my side”
“I am at a major bulge bracket US Investment Bank currently working alongside graduates from top tier universities across the world. This has been possible only because of the course at SIB”

Breaking in is hard, its super competitive, the odds are stacked against you.
At SIB, having trained and delivered “outcomes” in the form of “job placements” which have not been possible through academic degrees or professional qualifications, we know that first hand. But breaking in is possible and achievable, if you go about it the right way.

“SIB gave me an accurate picture of what an analyst’s life would entail and taught me all the fundamentals of investment banking to a very high standard. The teaching is grounded in reality and focuses on what employers would actually expect from you from day one. I also love the fact that SIB works very hard to get its students interviews and for the whole month we are hammered with interview preparation”
"Joining SIB was a very good decision. It improved my technical skills, 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"
Though in reality, this happens everyday @ SIB

Candidates will typically be interviewed by boutique Corporate Finance firms, Equity Research houses, mid sized Investment Banks, Hedge Funds and Private Equity houses.

Very high. Delivering “outcomes” in the form of job placements is something very core, central and sacred to what SIB is all about.
Candidates who secure 60% on assessments and complete the program successfully will be awarded a SIB completion certificate. Having said that, we encourage candidates to rise above the mind set of “collecting” certificates. What matters is that top recruiters hire from SIB regularly. That in itself is the best certification there could be!
Unfortunately, SIB cannot assist you with a work permit in the UK. But we have strong contacts with recruiters in all major financial hubs across the world and can assist you with placements in your home country.
This is stuff that folks outside will not necessarily tell you. We’re sharing this with you irrespective of whether you pursue our Programs or not, so that you can make more informed career choices.
But if you are thinking of pursuing Masters in the hope of better job prospects then pause and think again:
The best strategy is always to get RELEVANT work experience first. Good luck!
