Investment Banking Interview Questions

Investment banking interviews are divided into early rounds and superdays. Expect your first round interview to be technical-heavy, so come ready to answer questions about accounting, valuation, and modeling. Though these interviews are quite technical, prepared candidates know that this is only half the battle. Make sure to also focus on preparing responses to fit questions that will highlight your disciplined, collaborative, and reliable work ethic.
