  • It was a 2-day training programme. On the first day we had financial Markets training, talks about Global Markets (Electronic trading, mining research, flow rates trading) and finished with a trading game. On the second day we learned about investment banking and other parts of the business through talks and participated in our own group case study, followed by a panel discussion.

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • We were given overviews of each speaker’s role and had the chance to ask them questions, so I learned a lot about what people’s day-to-day jobs entailed and how they got there.

    Your Impressions

  • 5. To what extent did you enjoy the virtual experience?
  • I enjoyed the programme all together. My favourite parted were some of the talks the Electronic Trading talk and learned a lot from that. The syndicated finance talk was very detailed and explained the whole process and the market. However, I think the programme could benefit from having more interactive opportunities and more technical deep-dives. I felt there was some repetition in what speakers were saying in explaining what Investment Banking is etc.
