Class Grade Breakdown
“Personally, IBIS enabled me to gain exposure to corporate finance, valuation, and the overall merger & acquisition environment. This was extremely helpful for me as I was going into my summer investment banking internship with J.P. Morgan, and ultimately contributed to me receiving a full-time offer with the firm.”
James Hert, J.P. Morgan, IBIS Alum
“The IBIS program provided me with the networking and technical skills that I needed to excel in investment banking. Through the IBIS program, I developed relationships with people who will be life-long friends and a skillset that will serve me throughout my career.”
Clayton Jenners, Deutsche Bank, IBIS Alum
“It comes as no surprise that the IBIS students who participate in our intern and full-time programs are extraordinarily qualified and well-prepared to work in a challenging work environment such as ours. The IBIS program and the W.P. Carey School of Business at ASU have put them in a position to not only pursue a career on Wall Street, but to succeed in a career on Wall Street.”
