    Great way to get into the world of Investment Banking

    Pros

    I would recommend the City Investment Training course to anyone looking to get into any area of IB, particularly to those who are concerned about their lack of experience or who are unsure about which specific direction they want to go in. The course covers both the technical side of Accounting, Financial Modelling and Valuation Analysis and also the more practical side of exploring the different paths you can go down through the use of case studies and mock negotiations etc... allowing you to gain experience across the spectrum of Equity Research, M&A, VC and PE. In terms of financial modelling, I feel the skills that the City Investment Training course provided me with are invaluable. Particularly in terms of the confidence I now feel with producing a model from scratch, and also in terms of techniques for navigating Annual Reports and finding the relevant information.

    Cons

    While I couldn't fault the course overall and I have seen a noticeable difference in my confidence and effectiveness going into applications, ending up with a job within a month of finishing. I did feel that for the amount of money the contact time for the second four weeks could be a lot better and in many ways you are left as a group to conduct your negotiations. While this is realistic I didn't feel I was getting my full value for money.

    Pros

    Amazing course. I've been provided with an invaluable insight into the industry and sought after skills. Sameer is a fantastic teacher and goes above and beyond to act as a mentor to his students. I'm very grateful to have made his acquaintance and sure of many future benefits of the course in establishing a career in investment banking. I would recommend the course to absolutely anyone aspiring to enter the industry.

    Cons

    Can't think of any, highly recommend.

    Programme really does boost banking job prospects - highly recommend!

    Pros

    High-quality training + job support. Really does boost your job prospects. I managed to get a job in valuations off the back of interning for City Investment Training and the sister company AlphaStone Equities for 4 months. The full time analyst course, whilst expensive, is worth it in my opinion if you're struggling to get your foot in the door or just want to ensure you maximise your chances of getting a summer internship or graduate role. The value proposition is much better than doing a masters if banking is what you want to go into. CEO Sameer is friendly, entrepreneurial, and has lots of experience in equity research; I learned a lot working with him.

    Cons

    Small company so things can be disorganized at times
