Investment Banking for Economists

  • University Center 6331 Crescent Road Vancouver, BC, V6T 1Z2 Canada (map)

Working in a dynamic, results driven environment with very talented and intelligent people may not appeal to everyone, but if that sounds a little like your dream job you won’t want to miss IEBA’s first event of the year: Investment Banking for Economists.

Blake Corbet, a Vancouver School of Economics Alumni and Managing Director at PI Financial, with 25 years of industry experience will be coming to speak about what it takes to be successful as an Investment Banker.

Mr Corbet will begin by outlining his personal journey through Investment Banking and will draw from his experience in recruiting to provide insight into interviews practices and skills necessary to navigate successfully through the industry. The latter portion of the event will be a crash course in Investment Banking. He will cover the process of securing and executing a deal and the role of an analyst in the process before opening up the floor to field questions from the audience.

Come prepared with any questions you may have!
