About the Program
Our Summer Internship Program is a paid internship that runs for 10 weeks from June to August, and is open to MBA candidates graduating after November 2018 who are interested in gaining an insight into Investment Banking & Capital Markets. Interns are assigned to a product, industry or coverage group throughout the 10 weeks and are integrated as a regular member of the group.
The first week consists of hands-on training, and throughout the program interns receive ongoing training and support including formal learning, on-the-job practice and mentoring. The program offers opportunities to meet with senior managers, colleagues and peers at all levels across the bank. So you may gain insights into the bank, its culture, and build a professional network.
Your managers will work with you on an objective and review process, which provides structure to your placement and gives you an outline of placement requirements and goals. This practice also gives us a tangible framework for assessing you for a full-time position after your graduation. The summer internship is our core hiring channel for our full-time Associate class.
To be eligible, you will have completed or be due to complete an MBA qualification (or equivalent)
All applicants must be finishing their courses between November 2018 and July 2019, be able to start full-time employment in July 2019 and be available for the full 10 week internship during Summer 2018.
