I am in­ter­ested in in­vest­ment bank­ing. I need de­tails re­gard­ing the course, fee etc. The abil­ity to take ini­tia­tive, net­work, keep calm and work un­der pres­sure are other qual­i­ties that mark out a suc­cess­ful in­vest­ment banker.

Most for­eign banks and fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions pre­fer man­age­ment grad­u­ates from pre­mier b-schools or pro­fes­sion­als in ac­coun­tancy (char­tered ac­coun­tants and cost ac­coun­tants), fi­nance ex­perts and econ­o­mists with post­grad­u­ate qual­i­fi­ca­tions in fi­nance, eco­nom­ics, fi­nan­cial plan­ning, cap­i­tal mar­kets and so on. A PhD in eco­nom­ics and rel­e­vant ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try can also get you a good job.

It is also pos­si­ble to take up bank­ing as a spe­cial­ist sub­ject at some in­sti­tu­tions. A few in­sti­tu­tions of­fer a BA in bank­ing, or a PG cer­tifi­cate or di­ploma in bank­ing.

Jobs for in­vest­ment bankers, as the term sug­gests, are in in­vest­ment banks, bro­ker­age firms, mu­tual funds, fi­nan­cial ser­vices com­pa­nies and other fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions. Although the ac­tion in in­vest­ment bank­ing is still largely in the big cap­i­tals of the world such as New York, Lon­don and Hong Kong and a few other money cen­tres around the world, some lead­ing in­vest­ment bank­ing com­pa­nies have of­fices in In­dia where trans­ac­tions are con­ducted.

Some of the in­sti­tu­tions of­fer­ing one-year PG diplo­mas in bank­ing are SNDT Women’s Univer­sity, Mum­bai Na­tional School of Bank­ing, Pune In­dian In­sti­tute of Bank­ing & Fi­nance, Mum­bai
