Thank you for your interest in the University of Houston Investment Banking Scholars Club. We are the most selective club at the Bauer College with a minimum 3.5 GPA to interview. This semester we have an average 3.7 GPA with a mix of 2/3 undergraduates and 1/3 graduates.
Our academic advisor, Dr. Praveen Kumar is the head of the academic advisory board for the IBSC and is the chair of the finance department. Dr. Kumar has assisted in creating a specialized Energy Analyst Certificate for the IBSC that allows members to take courses that are directly relevant to energy investment banking.
The organization engages in rigorous training for international investment banking case competitions. We also host the annual Oil & Gas Case Competition and Conference which is attended by students from every university in Texas. Judges and speakers for the conference are bankers from Goldman Sachs, Moelis & Co., SRR, and other firms with a large local presence.
We also focus on writing a finance journal in cooperation with the Jones School of Business at Rice.
I invite you to contact us and meet our brilliant and personable group.
