If you’re facing the difficult challenge of obtaining relevant work experience in a competitive field such as investment banking, asset management, private equity or consulting, this programme is for you.
In a training internship, you gain direct exposure to real firms within your target field (generally investment banking, sales & trading, asset management, hedge funds, private equity, real estate, venture capital, or consulting).
In addition, you are taught fundamental skills and concepts critical to securing a finance job on a 1-1 basis, whilst doing practical activities, which cement your understanding. This is the fundamental difference between a training internship and a conventional internship. In most conventional internships, you will not receive any training and will be expected to perform from day 1.
Previous students have described the training internship as being crucial in helping them secure competitive finance opportunities. Our testimonials are evidence of this.
The majority of our training internships are based in the UK and USA. The programme is structured as a learning experience rather than paid employment.
The programme is flexible to your schedule and can be done during term time.
As part of the programme you will spend time with a real firm within your target sector thereby giving you fantastic insight and an excellent CV boost.
Students are selected for this programme based on their performance in interview and demonstrated willingness to succeed in their field of interest.
The competitive programme is arranged as a “learning experience” for the participant rather than “employment” based on a contract where work is paid for. This means that international students who face work restrictions are able to do the training internship.
Ambitious students and graduates looking to work in finance or consulting leverage the experience to gain a substantial competitive advantage in their careers and a clearer direction on which career they want. Students develop highly regarded practical experience at a company in investment banking, private equity, asset management, trading, venture capital, consulting or fintech.
Many institutions hire our students for high paid roles who typically earn about $100,000 in the first two years, and the experience is designed to open hard to reach career opportunities. Into City Prep handles all of the logistics on your behalf to ensure a seamless way to break into the industry.
If you’re about to graduate, but require visa sponsorship to work or you have less than 6 months relevant professional experience and you need a job, this solution is for you. This package includes a fully customised career action strategy as well as rigorous training and personalised support each step of the way.
