  1. Career Edge - NYU High School Summer Program

Investment Banking Fundamentals

New York City is a major hub in the world of investment banking, and New York University is an ideal place to learn about this complex industry. Investment banking offers a wide range of career options to choose from, due to its highly specialized nature. Managers, analysts, traders, brokers, hedgers, and retirement planners all take part in this industry, each with a role to play. This course provides an overview of the origins of traditional investment banking; the history of key financial products; strategies related to relationship management, trading, IPOs, and fixed income; and synergies in mergers and acquisitions. Upon completion of this program, you will have a foundational understanding of how investment banks provide a broad range of products and services to both issuing and investing clients and where you might fit in as you contemplate your pre-college path, future major, and career.
