Transitioning from consumer banking to investment banking, while improbable, is absolutely possible. We had a chat with Sanjita, a retail banking professional and student of the Certified Investment Banking training program at Imarticus Learning.
Here’s her story.
My name is Sanjita Pednekar. I have a master’s degree in commerce and graduated in management studies back in 2014. I am currently a part of batch 84 of the Certified Investment Operations course at Imarticus.
I heard about Imarticus on the internet. I was working in the retail banking industry but have always wanted to enter the investment banking division. I began looking for courses that would teach me the requisite knowledge and help me become an investment banker. I first did a bit of research into the skills an investment banker needs to learn and then went through the program webpage and curriculum. I found that the program has an overall view of investment banking and would build the skills that the industry needs. Moreover, Imarticus Learning reviews were very positive, and these were the factors that convinced me to enroll.
I would rate the course 5/5
The best thing about the course is the comprehensive curriculum that’s precise and practically oriented. Each lesson is co-related to hands-on case studies and projects, and that’s what helped me through my learning journey. The learning management system – Learntron, also is an excellent resource and was accessible 24/7.
Guest lectures were conducted periodically by industry experts, and they were invaluable
The lectures gave me a perspective of investment banking from an industry point of view. One of the sessions that I clearly remember and can relate to was on an options strategy. It helped me understand how the options strategy works in the market and how it can impact the derivatives market.
The resume building process was a key highlight of the program
When I compare my old resume with the post-Imarticus one, there certainly is a drastic change. I’ve been able to present myself effectively through my resume because of the prompt guidance from the faculty.
The faculty get a superstar rating from me, especially Lourdes Maam
The entire faculty was approachable and friendly and would take extra care to clear all my doubts and questions.
I’d recommend the course to everyone looking for a career in investment banking; it will give you an edge over the competition – guaranteed!
