Last month, the ESCP Finance Society (EFS) successfully completed a new edition of its Investment Banking training sessions.

The EFS organised two days of training for prospective interviewees preparing for investment banking interviews. This year’s edition, unlike previous years, was held earlier to help applicants prepare for assessment centres as the application season comes to an end.

During the two days of preparation, selected candidates had the opportunity to learn more about the recruitment and interview processes of leading investment banks and boutiques. The preparation consisted of 40-minute interviews conducted with the help of professional bankers covering technical, behavioural, and competency-based questions. Candidates also benefited from personalised feedback and tailored insights from the interviewers on how to break into the competitive investment banking industry.

For this year’s edition, 26 students from the Bachelor in Management (BSc), Master in Management and Specialised Masters across all campuses were selected to take part in the training sessions.

This event was made possible thanks to a large panel of bankers from leading institutions such as:

  • Barclays
  • Negentropy Capital Partners
  • Evercore
  • J.P. Morgan
  • Rothschild
  • Jefferies
  • Stifel
  • Rivean Capital

Julien Ruiz, EFS member and participant, said: “Having attended different interviews with seasoned industry professionals and observing the ways in which they directed the dynamics of the exchanges was fascinating. I was also highly impressed with the quality of our students and the knowledgeability they demonstrated.”
