Finalist, National Investment Banking Competition
Participating in the National Investment Banking Competition (NIBC) has been an exciting and rewarding experience that has motivated me to explore the corporate finance field and consider a career in investment banking. The NIBC is an annual international business case competition with undergraduate and postgraduate competitors from more than 100 universities around the world and professionals from investment banks, private equity, and assets management firms.
The 2018 competition in Vancouver was demanding – we worked all day to build valuation models and prepare and practise our presentations within eight hours – but it was a fantastic opportunity to develop and showcase our skills in financial analysis, modelling and pitching, which are essential for careers in investment banking.
The NIBC is also about expanding professional spheres. As one of the finalist teams, we were invited to join networking events where we got to know professionals in the investment banking, private equity and assets management industry, drinking, chatting and joking together.
