Overview Of The Internship Program

The 12-weeks long program is a hybrid program. Most of the program will be conducted in person with some virtual training sessions with our remote teams.
The duration of the program will be divided into Municipal Finance and Corporate Finance for each intern.
The program includes training modules led by seniors and professionals in Banking and Municipal Finance. As a part of the training, interns will be given small projects to work on.
Our expert professionals Trisha Oreta (Director) and Fela Adewusi (analyst) will offer 1-on-1 mentoring sessions for each intern.
Interns will gain direct client experience. Mentors and team leaders will engage interns to prepare materials for client calls and meetings. When possible, interns will get the opportunity to attend the meetings.
Interns will be required to work on a topical, quantitative, qualitative, and client-centric capstone project in either area. The project will run throughout the internship program. The interns will get the chance to gain hands-on knowledge and resolve real client issues.
Interns will work during regular business hours- 8 am to 5 pm.
We will set up a day tour of Bloomberg Facilities for on-site interns.
We will also set up ‘informational interviews’ with local municipal issuers.
Interns will enjoy a lunch with our CEO, Eric Van Standifer, and learn a deeper, strategic view of the investment banking business.
