The Cal Poly Investment Banking Society (CPIBS) was founded for one purpose: to train Cal Poly students for positions as investment banking analysts. The educational program we developed to accomplish this task synthesizes an extensive collection of study materials with hands-on tutoring; step-by-step, start-to-finish guidance; and highly applicable advice distilled from first-hand experience and real-world knowledge. Members typically spend between six and nine months in the program at which point their knowledge base and skills sets have expanded enough for them break into Wall Street. Beyond student success, our mission is, ultimately, to establish a wide-spread, well-regarded investment banking presence within the College of Business; promote awareness of the industry, its major players and the outstanding opportunities afforded bankers, both now and in the future; and, most importantly, perpetuate and expand the club such that future Cal Poly students will never lose access to the materials and instructions we’ve complied.
We are a highly motivated group of individuals with a genuine interest in finance. Our members usually join as underclassmen or juniors, and thus spend at least a year working together toward this common goal. We are always looking for new members and corporate sponsors. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Winter Quarter 2015
Haven't had our first meeting yet, I do apologize for the delay but it's been an extremely busy quarter. Give a big congratulations to one of our members, Chris Shanahan, who just finished recruiting and has signed with Greenhill & Co.'s Summer Analyst program. Greenhill is known for only selecting the very best candidates and having some of the hardest interviews out of all banks on the street, so let's give a big shout out to one of our members.
Also, CPIBS gives a big congrats to our alumni and previous president Kyle Williams for accepting his offer at Piper Jaffray. Good luck and well wishes to Kyle.
We'll get the ball rolling for the first meeting come next year, but if you're a third year/transfer, contact me immediately via the "Contact" tab.
