Career Goal: Investment Banking

“The core establishes your proficiency across domains and builds relationships with peers through team learning. Specific classes like Goodson’s M&A class, Sloan’s Corporate Financial Reporting and Lawrence’s Financial Statement Analysis classes all directly prepared me for a role in banking. Classes were largely a combination of theory and case work with cases written by the professors themselves – many in real time!”

“The Women in Leadership club helped me take a role of leadership for my campus and gave me a platform to practice my leadership and speaking skills. Having to present the school and communicate a value to prospective sponsors gave me space to be creative with my speaking and presentation – outside the classroom.”

“Banking is a very structured process. Internship recruiting done well results in a full-time offer from your desired firm. Haas’ Career Services were very hands-on and creative with our recruiting help. All top employers for investment banking recruit direct on campus and the school prioritizes these events making them convenient for your class schedule and thoughtful in construct.”

“Interning at Morgan Stanley was my goal and the school definitely helped me achieve that. Following a successful summer, I was given an offer to come back full time.”
