This course will first introduce the students to the history and structure of the investment banking industry. The remainder of the semester will be spent developing the skills necessary to fill the basic responsibility that a summer intern will face at an investment banking firm. Specifically, these will be spreadsheet skills focusing on pro-forma statement preparation of new issues and pro-forma statements of merged firms. In addition, students will be introduced to tax implications of mergers and the due diligence requirements in assessing new issues. No credit toward finance major requirements.
