Investment bankers are the all-stars of the finance world.

How do you analyze a company’s financial reports? How do you compile a portfolio of investments for maximum return? What investments will give you the best return for the least risk? How can you evaluate financial decisions when conditions are constantly changing? These are the essential questions of the finance industry – and they are intimately related to the lives we lead and the world we live in.

Kyle Jacobs

In Investment Finance, I’m learning valuable skills for a career in finance-related fields without just being thrown in the deep end and trying to figure it out for myself at a conventional internship or even a job. This is a life-changing experience which is a great start to building your career. The classroom experience has taught me necessary skills for my career goals.

Courtney Schaf
Northwestern University, Class of 2017

After the intensive finance course, I felt well-equipped to do evaluations and build models in the classroom, and applying them in looking at the scalability of companies. I’m so grateful of my experience working with a South African company in its initial stages.
