Poets & Quants: Scott Rostan “Banking Bounces Back: Starting MBA Salaries Rising” By Jeff Schmitt Banking is dead. Millennials would rather start their own businesses, critics say. They don’t want to work 80 hours in a burn out job. Of course, they’re looking to make a difference, not a fortune. At this rate, why would anyone want to go into banking? Three words: Money…power…access. Oh, and it’s easier to help others from the boardroom than the sidewalk. If you’re among those looking to score big on Wall Street, here is some good news. In the latest Training The Street MBA Employment Survey, 43 percent of respondents received base salary offers of $125,000 or more. That’s up from 26 percent last year and 9 percent in 2013. What’s more, 79 percent reported offers of $100,000 or more, up from 74 percent in 2014. And that was a boon for the MBA financiers. […]

Business Insider: Scott Rostan “Millennials on Wall Street are smarter and more sophisticated than their predecessors” By Portia Crowe As the founder and CEO of Training The Street, Scott Rostan has been teaching financial-training courses to interns and analysts at Wall Street firms as diverse as Credit Suisse, UBS, and the Blackstone Group for more than 15 years. Before that, he was a new hire himself on Merrill Lynch’s investment banking team. So he’s got a lot of insight on who the banks are hiring these days, and how the demographic has changed. Rostan shared some of his observations about this year’s crop of Wall Street interns with Business Insider. They’re smarter. Most notably, Rostan said, “the students are definitely getting more sophisticated.” They’re coming in with much more capital markets knowledge and corporate valuation knowledge than they did 10 or 20 years ago. Rostan attributes that “dramatic shift” to the proliferation of news and […]

Business Insider: Scott Rostan “16 ways to crush your summer internship on Wall Street” By Portia Crowe If you play this right, your internship could lead to a first-year analyst job. Congratulations! You’ve landed yourself an internship on Wall Street this summer. While this is just the very first step to building a career on the Street, the stakes are high — if you play this right, it could lead to an entry-level job. “The most common path to getting a first-year analyst offer is to have completed a summer internship with that bank, or to have completed a summer internship with a related bank,” says Chandler Holbrook of OneWire, a career website for finance professionals. Scott Rostan, the founder and CEO of Training The Street, which gives courses to prepare young people for internships and analyst jobs on Wall Street, says that banks actually want to hire their summer interns. “This isn’t […]

Business Insider: Scott Rostan “Here’s why more Wall Streeters are heading to Silicon Valley” By : Kathleen Elkins Last week, Morgan Stanley’s chief financial officer of four years, Ruth Porat, announced she plans to join Google as its new CFO. She’s not the only one leaving Wall Street and heading to Silicon Valley. Goldman Sachs has lost several top people to West Coast tech companies over the past few years, including Anthony Noto and Sarah Friar. Noto took over as Twitter’s CFO, and Friar left for Salesforce and is now the CFO at Square. It’s not just veterans who are making a change; more elite college graduates and MBAs are foregoing pinstripes and moving West. Only 10% of MIT undergraduates went into finance last year, according to a recent New York Times article — a startlingly drop from the 31% who took Wall Street jobs in 2006. “Software companies, meanwhile, hired 28% of graduates in 2014, compared with 10% in 2006,” it […]

BloombergBusiness: Scott Rostan “Dollar’s Gain Gives CEOs More Muscle to Acquire Abroad” By Tara Lachapelle The stronger U.S. dollar may be the final nudge American acquirers needed to start bidding for foreign targets they’ve had their eyes on. Even as the rising currency weighs on earnings at some U.S. companies that have overseas operations, it’s also offering an added bonus for those scouring abroad for deals. Just last week, Ball Corp., a U.S. maker of beverage cans, agreed to buy London-based Rexam Plc for $6.8 billion, less than it would have cost a year ago thanks to the relative strength of the dollar and U.S. stocks against their European counterparts. With American suitors getting more bang for their buck in other parts of the world, the Rexam deal is probably just the first U.S. cross-border takeover of size this year. The greenback has already gained 21 percent against the euro in […]
