Founded in 2013 by a group of ambitious Carlson undergraduate students and formerly known as The Investment and Finance Organization, The Investment Banking Club (IBC) is the University of Minnesota's premier undergraduate club for students looking to enter careers in investment banking, private equity, and other non-corporate finance roles.
The Investment Banking Club at the University of Minnesota, formerly InFO, was originally founded to provide students with an opportunity to learn about various corporate careers in finance.

This transition was designed to be a vehicle for exceptional students interested in a career in I-banking, as well as a chance to market the talent of our members to Wall Street and the greater Midwest community.
