About the Program

Our Summer Internship Program is a paid internship that runs for 10 weeks from the end of June to August, and is open to penultimate-year students graduating in 2018 who are interested in gaining an insight into one of our core departments at Credit Suisse. These include Investment Banking (including Investment Banking and Capital Markets and Global Markets), Private Banking/Wealth Management (Asset Management) and Technology (IT).

Our internship is designed to offer real insight into our business, and is one of the most in-depth internships within the financial services industry. From day one you’ll be part of the team. You’ll face real challenges, have real client exposure, enjoy real achievements and have your talents recognized every step of the way.

We will help guide you through your summer experience, and each intern is assigned a mentor and a buddy, so you’ll have all the support you need.

Because we want to bring the very best people into our organization—people who understand our business inside and out—we’ve designed our internships to act as a pipeline into our future full-time classes of new hires. This means that if you show real potential and demonstrate exceptional performance during your time with us, you may be offered a full-time position for the following year.

Degree Requirements

To be eligible, you will have completed or be due to complete a Bachelors, Masters or PhD qualification (or equivalent) in any discipline.

All applicants must be in their penultimate year of study, be available for the full 10 weeks and be able to start full-time employment in July 2018.

What We Look For

While our employees have a wide range of experiences and interests, they share an intellectual curiosity, a desire to achieve and a pattern of excellence and achievement. Whatever your background, you’ll need to be:

  • Client-focused and committed to developing creative solutions
  • A leader who naturally attracts followers
  • A critical thinker with excellent problem-solving skills
  • A self-starter who is able to envision long-term goals and ways to attain them
  • A collaborative team member who builds excellent relationships
  • An articulate communicator who also recognizes the importance of listening
  • Analytical and logical, with raw intellectual ability
