About the International Banking Cycle

After the success of the past twenty-eight years, we proudly announce that the largest Investment Banking recruitment event in the Netherlands, the International Banking Cycle (IBC), will be organized again this year. Like previous years, the IBC will be organized by the Financial Study association Rotterdam (FSR) and the Financial Study association Amsterdam (FSA). The IBC gives students a clear view of the operational practices and possible career opportunities at major international Investment Banks.

This year ten prominent Investment Banks will participate in the IBC, which are: J.P. Morgan, Nomura, Lazard, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Barclays, Bank of America, ING, Citi and BNP Paribas. The banks will contribute to the IBC 2023 by giving workshops, presentations, and conducting interviews.


In the workshops, selected students will work out a real-life case, which is developed and presented by an Investment Bank. This is the perfect opportunity for students to get acquainted with the dynamic world of Investment Banking. The number of students that may participate in workshops and interviews is limited. To apply for the IBC 2023 please fill in your application on this website. Please see ‘Programme’ for all application deadlines.
