What is the FinanceLab London studytrip?

FinanceLab study trip is a tradition going on its sixth consecutive year. FinanceLab facilitates a trip for some of Denmark’s best students, hand-picked by the banks to London to meet several of the biggest Investment Banks in the world. Get the opportunity to see the banks from the inside and get a feel for how it is to be a part of an M&A deal, trading on the world’s most vibrant trade floors or an analyst in asset management departments renowned around the world.

How does it work?

Throughout FinanceLab’s history we have come in contact with the Investment Banking sector in London, and we want to pass some of our knowledge and experience on to you. Our sponsors in London have repeatedly expressed interest in meeting some of our members, and we have negotiated a deal where they sponsor a trip for you to come meet them in their main offices in London. Send your CV, and our premium sponsors in London will select the participants they want to see the most. If you are selected you will get notice from us, and be invited to workshops to make sure you are ready to answer all questions they may ask.

GOOD THINGS TO KNOW! FAQ

Everyone is welcome to apply! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us

When is it?

We will be in London from Monday, September 4th to Sunday, September 10th.

How much does it cost?

Our partners in London have agreed to sponsor the trip, but the scope of the trip with everything that is included, still forces us to charge a small fee. This will be around 3,900 DKK, and will include plane tickets, hotel, travel cards in London and some of the meals. Be prepared to have to pay for some of the meals yourself.

Who can apply?

Anyone currently studying for a bachelor or master in Denmark can apply. We encourage students from other schools than CBS to apply as well, as the banks aim to hire from a broad background.

What about flights?

Flights both ways are covered. We will order the tickets for you, flying out of Copenhagen, and coming back to Copenhagen after the trip. Transportation to and from Kastrup will be covered by the participants.

And hotel?

Again – it’s covered! Part of the price

Who selects the participants?

Our premium sponsors select the participants for the trip. Thus, it is completely out of Financelab’s hands who gets to go and who doesn’t.

What are the banks looking for?

The banks are looking for anyone who has an interest in finance. Even if you are studying something that is not directly relevant they will consider your application if you have shown interest in the field of finance.

What should my CV look like?

Your CV should be one page, without pictures, and be easily readable. The banks receive a lot of CVs, and don’t have time to spend too much time on each. Make sure that the layout is intuitive and clean, and not over the top. For a more detailed guide please have a look at our CV guide below. Click to zoom.

Is it worth it?

The previous attendees for the study trip have been very successful in landing internships, and according to the surveys we have conducted after all the previous trips, participants agree that it is worth it! The banks are also very interested in meeting our students again, which means they think it’s worth spending money to meet you!

What banks will we be visiting?

Right now we have confirmation from JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank, Nomura, Citi, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. More may  be announced at a later time.

When is the application deadline?

June 1st.
