Simulation Overview

The Investment Banking simulation is a dynamic, comprehensive financial simulation developed investment bankers. It encapsulates the rigor and pace of real-world investment banking transactions.

Students engage in the end-to-end process of deals, from analysis, financial modelling, pitching, strategic advisory, crafting proposals and securing deals under tight deadlines.

This multiplayer simulation emphasizes critical thinking, deal structuring, and collaborative negotiation. Students are assessed based on their analysis and transaction execution.
