Summer Internships

Internships are an important part of the Master’s Program in Finance experience because they allow graduate students to continue their personal development and make important connections with potential employers. For this reason, the External Relations team works with students before the Program to assist in identifying summer internship opportunities in a variety of organizations, including investment banks, consulting firms, government agencies, and not-for-profits, among others.

The Master’s Program in Finance students are available for internships during the summer before they start the one-year graduate program. Recently, our graduate students have interned in various corporate finance departments, private equity, investment banking and asset management firms, including:

  • Bank of China (Beijing, China)
  • Compass Equity Partners (Westport, CT)
  • Cummins, Inc. (Columbus, Indiana)
  • DRW Trading (New York, NY)
  • Goldman Sachs (New York, NY)
  • Gould Asset Management (Claremont, CA)
  • Jefferies & Co. (New York, NY)
  • JP Morgan (New York, NY)
  • Kendall Jackson (Santa Rosa, CA)
  • Kontera, Inc. (San Francisco, CA)
  • Merrill Lynch (Newport Beach, CA)
  • Moelis & Co. (Palo Alto, CA)
  • Oakmont Corporation (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Trust Company of the West (Los Angeles, CA)

Please note, the vast majority of our summer internships are paid experiences. If you are considering offering an unpaid internship, the U.S. Department of Labor has outlined a list of criteria that must be met at http://www.dol.gov/elaws/esa/flsa/scope/er15.asp.  Additionally, students are eligible to receive academic credit for a qualified internship.
