After the success of the past twenty-six 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.

The International Banking Cycle, an investment in your career!

This year nine prominent Investment Banks will participate in the IBC, which are: J.P. Morgan, Nomura, Lazard, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Barclays, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, ING and Citi. The banks will contribute to the IBC 2021 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 one of the Investment Banks. 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 2021 please fill in your application on this website. Please see 'Programme' for all application deadlines.

After the workshop, each bank will give a presentation, which is open for everyone interested in Investment Banking. During the presentation, a team of Investment Bankers will provide details on working at an Investment Bank, on the specific bank characteristics and on the career opportunities you have as a young professional. There will be a reception after each presentation where you can meet employees of the bank in an informal manner. Students that have been selected for interviews will be notified the same day and interviews will be held the day after the workshop.

All students in the final stage of their study, with a keen interest in the world of Finance and Banking, can take part in the IBC. Participation will give you a direct insight into the Investment Banking industry and could initiate the start of your career at one of the world’s leading Investment Banks!
