"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"
"The intensive training made me adept in all relevant disciplines such as accounting, creation of profiles, comparables, DCF valuation, M&A considerations etc. I gained deep insights about sector peculiarities and I was ideally prepared for challenging finance interviews. I had high expectations and SIB exceeded these by far"

SIB’s course is very well structured and intensive. It equipped me with essential analyst skills which cannot be gained from universities. And these hands-on skills have given me a better understanding of financial theories from a practical perspective. Great experience.
