About Stockholm Investment Banking Week (SIBW)

Similarly to the London Investment Banking Week, GIBS annually arrange a trip to Stockholm to meet with prestigious investment banks and corporate finance firms. A selection of previously visited companies can be found to the right.

SIBW is the second highlight of Gothenburg Investment Banking Society, and traditionally takes place every winter in late January or early February.

Fifteen selected students are given the opportunity to meet with investment banks at close range at their offices. This gives the participants deep insight into the day-to-day activities of investment bankers, as well as an opportunity for networking and topic discussion about the recruitment process.

“I was a part of SIBW 2017, where I got in contact with my current employer. GIBS helped me to a great starting point in my career, which ultimately got me to where I am today. I really recommend everyone with an interest in finance to apply to SIBW to get a better insight into the industry!”

Johan SundénEquity Research Analyst, Carnegie

“SIBW and LIBW gave me valuable insights into what you actually do as an investment banker, what types of roles there are, and most importantly, I developed many connections with people in the industry. As a board member, I gained a lot of relevant experience, widened my network even more, and also landed a strong merit on my resume.”

The banking weeks and my work on the board eventually resulted in two internships, and I am very grateful for the opportunities and skill-set GIBS has provided me with.

Stockholm Investment Banking Week 2019

We are happy to announce the dates for the Stockholm Investment Banking Week 2019, which will take place between 23rd-25th of January! 

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 Stockholm 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 fully 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 Stockholm Investment Banking Week are highly encouraged to apply for the internships and graduate schemes offered by the banks.
