What is Investment Banking Training?

Investment banking courses may take several forms, depending on where the course is being taught, what aspect of investment banking is being covered, and whether or not the training is focused on a degree or certification program. Some investment banking classes are taught in traditional classroom environments, hosted by universities, technical schools, or training companies. Other courses are taught online, using websites with audio or video to convey the lessons, information, and tests from the teacher to the students. For students whose schedules do not allow for regular training sessions, there are also self-study packages available for self-guided investment banking training.

An investment banking course will tend to focus on increasing the student’s depth of knowledge in a specific area of investment banking, or building the essential skills needed for productive financial data analysis and modeling.

The following topics are examples of the types of available investment training classes:

  • Introduction to Valuation Models
  • How to Avoid Common Valuation Models Mistakes
  • Financial Market’s Impact on Valuation Models
  • Types of Capital Structures
  • Basic and Advanced Financial Modeling using Excel
  • Corporate Valuation Methodologies
  • Leveraged Buyout Modeling
  • Analyzing 10K Forms
  • Mergers and Acquisition Deals

Investment banking courses can be found to suit any level of experience with the financial industry, from general introductory classes to advanced instruction in specified types of transactions, areas of the market, or specialized sub-disciplines of financial modeling.
