Graduate Internship Program

Full-time MS in Corporate Finance (MSCF) and MS in Global Financial Analysis (MSGFA) candidates who enter the program with no professional-level work experience in the field of finance may be able to complete an internship to acquire practical experience. It provides opportunities for students to:

  • Assess personal strengths and weaknesses in light of the demands they are apt to encounter in their prospective field
  • Gain a base of experience to realistically plan the start of their careers
  • Demonstrate their professional potential to prospective employers

As an intern, you should expect to be involved directly in securing your internship. The Graduate School, the Center for Career Services and the department internship coordinator can assist you in contacting potential internship sponsors. You also are encouraged to demonstrate your own initiative in finding internship opportunities.

Eligibility

The internship is available only to full-time MSCF and MSGFA candidates who enter the program with no professional-level work experience in finance. To be eligible, you should be well into your graduate program, have taken at least four Finance courses at the 600-level or higher, and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25.
