Dayton Investment Banking Club
The Dayton Investment Banking Club (DIBC) is a competitive, undergraduate student organization that is registered and recognized by the University of Dayton. The group is dedicated to the development and advancement of its members toward a career in investment banking, private equity, corporate development, and other similar roles.
DIBC was founded and is supported on three pillars: an educational bootcamp, experiential learning, professional development, and meaningful pipelines. With the support of these pillars, our goal is to attain 100% placement in investment banking roles for every class that comes through our club.
DIBC was founded in January of 2021 by Isaac Grude with the help of Alec Gizzie, John Coffey, Ryan Dermody, and Kyle Phillips. The club was founded to help prepare our members for a career in investment banking and to secure competitive internship/full-time job offers.
The University of Dayton has picked up momentum in recent years as it has begun to consistently place 2-4 seniors in the investment banking industry every year. As a club, we are looking to accelerate the momentum and bring opportunities to a larger swath of the business school undergraduate student body.
While we are proud of what DIBC has accomplished over the past year and a half, we believe things are just getting started. Getting the educational bootcamp eligible for credit through the business school, actively bringing more investment banks on campus for recruiting opportunities, and creating a "finance week" for students to visit Chicago/New York/Charlotte are just some of the goals we hope to achieve in the next few semesters.
