Before jumping over to why so many people want to pursue a career in Investment Banking, let’s peep into what Investment banking entails and what it takes to be an investment banker.

What is Investment Banking?

The investment banking segment is the strongest pillar of the finance and banking industry. It propels the wheel of the economy by acting as a mediator between corporations seeking fund and investors looking to park their wealth. This channelling of funds is on a very high scale and involves high profile individuals, corporations and government bodies.

Investment banking is a specialised segment of the banking industry that deals with high stake investments and provides financial guidance to investors. In addition to this investment banks also help to facilitate IPOs and M&A deals by leveraging their large professional network and financial expertise.

Given the crucial function that the investment banks perform, people are keener on pursuing a career in this industry. How can you get a job as an investment banker? It is a common question among individuals who are aspiring for a career in this domain. Well, the answer to this question is very subjective and requires personal evaluation.

If you are still in the early phase of your career development, you can opt for a bachelor’s degree in statistics, economics, mathematics, commerce, or any relevant discipline. You can boost your prospects for a job just after graduation by enrolling for an investment banking certification course.
