Not necessary but definitely helps a lot, as IBA has exclusive events with top tier banks, rigorous interview prep, and many other resources that BC as a whole isn't great at providing. That being said, plenty of people go into IB without IBA, but it's a phenomenal resource if you're accepted (and have the time for the commitment).

IBA is definitely super helpful for the recruiting process. Almost everyone in the club places at a BB/EB/Good MM bank. But as the poster above said, it definitely isn't necessary to get into IB (probably 60-70% of IB placement at BC is from IBA, and 30-40% is from people outside the club).
