About London Investment Banking Week (LIBW)

GIBS annually arranges trips to London – called the London Investment Banking Week (LIBW). The LIBW is the main highlight of GIBS, and traditionally takes place every autumn in September.

London is a global financial hub, and home to some of the world’s premier investment banks. Fifteen selected students are given the opportunity to meet with investment banks at close range at their offices. This gives participants deep insights into the day-to-day activities of investment bankers, as well as an opportunity for networking and topic discussion about the recruitment process.

“GIBS provided me with invaluable insight into investment banking and a network full of aspiring young professionals. This network helped me to secure internships and a full time role. I would strongly encourage students interested in investment banking to get involved in GIBS!”

Jakob RadosInvestment Banking Analyst, Barclays

London Investment Banking Week 2019

London Investment Banking Week 2019, will take place in September 2019! 

Fifteen students from Gothenburg School of Business, Economics & Law and Chalmers University of Technology will be selected to visit six top-tier investment banks in London together with GIBS. Each visit usually lasts for about three hours and could consist of an HR presentation of career opportunities, Q&A and networking session with professionals from different departments, guided tour around the facility, and case studies.

The trip is self-funded and the exact schedule for the week will be released after all participants have been confirmed and bookings have been completed. The hosting investment banks will review the CVs of the participants and make notes for future recruitment.

Furthermore, the participants of London Investment Banking Week are highly encouraged to apply for the internships and graduate schemes offered by the banks.
