Capital Markets Careers Course

Our easy to understand one day course.

The primary objective of The Capital Markets Career Workshop is to enhance the employability prospects of all course participants who intend to pursue a career in finance.

We achieve this objective by ensuring that participants have a full understanding of the structure, components and functions of capital markets so that they are able to make informed decisions about which specific career path they should pursue and can discuss current financial issues with confidence during the application and interview process conducted by investment banks.

Feedback from participants at previous Instructus courses strongly indicates that the prospect of securing an internship or graduate training position with a financial services organisation is significantly improved when candidates are able to demonstrate a proper and fully-informed knowledge of capital markets and of their role in the wider financial world.

Our aim is to deliver this knowledge - in a friendly and jargon-free manner - to all attendees of The Capital Markets Career Workshop.

"Had a great time on the Introduction to Capital Markets course last week. Really informative, learnt a lot and had a lot of fun in a great atmosphere. Thanks guys."

“The Instructus Markets 'Investment Banking Masterclass' held at the London office of the hedge fund Trafalgar Capital was absolutely brilliant!
It was an invaluable course that equipped me with the knowledge required to succeed in a highly competitive graduate recruitment market as it helped to secure my Summer Internship at a bulge bracket investment bank for 2014.
Giles was not only very friendly, accommodating and patient but his technical knowledge and expertise were incredible. I'd definitely recommend Instructus markets to anyone thinking of starting a careers in financial service, as it will put you miles ahead of the vast majority of competition.”
