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 investment 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 world we live in.

Eddie Wu

The Investment Finance course was such an engaging and challenging experience, thanks to our amazing teacher. Be prepared to have so much fun and learn so much at the same time.

Kyle Jacobs
Brandeis University Class of 2022

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 with a guaranteed internship. The classroom experience has taught me necessary skills for my career goals.

Jason Guay
Isenberg Class of 2017

I walked into the finance course with very limited Excel skills, and due to the class, I was able to start my internship with a good head on my shoulders and work in Excel on the daily. I'm very thankful to have picked up skills from our amazing teacher during the course.

Grant Watson
UVA Class of 2019

Our teacher made the class a fun environment to learn finance and made the weeks a worthwhile experience. I really enjoyed the fund project, and found it a great way to apply what we had learned.
