Learnt the basics of how an Investment Bank functions and the necessary skills to succeed within the industry. There was an opportunity to network each day with those already working within the firm, in various divisions such as Investment Banking and Global Markets. There was also a chance to work on case studies.
We were given different presentations on the different divisions at Nomura. There was also the opportunity to network with the other participants of the programme and with experienced employers in the bank. Finally, there were also sessions on career advice which and personal branding, this was extremely helpful.
A two week virtual internship due to covid 19. The first week involved general training on Investment Banking, Global Markets and other skills such as debating and excel. The second week each intern joined a desk in their chosen area and spent the week networking and working on a presentation that they gave to their team at the end of the week.
The insight was two weeks. The first week was made up of various training activities. The training involved learning more about financial markets as well as giving the opportunity to work on presentation skills. The second week of the programme involved joining an allocated desk in the investment banking division. We were given topics to work on presentations for during our time on the desk and had the opportunity to network.
It consisted of training for the first week with the whole cohort of Women's Immersion Interns, with training in finance, excel and soft skills. Then a week with one assigned desk, working on an assigned project and presenting at the end of the week.
The Explore Nomura Programme is a unique four day classroom based opportunity to gain an early insight into Investment Banking and the skills necessary for success. The Programme features desk shadowing, networking events and case study exercises. Through its focus on Investment Banking, Global Markets and Corporate Infrastructure, you will have the chance to experience some of the most important business functions within an Investment Bank.
The Explore Programme was a 4 day insight into the Nomura's 3 divisions. Due to Covid-19, the programme was all online and consisted of interactive sessions about what the different divisions consist of, carrying out presentations ourselves, networking sessions and also soft-skills training.
It was well scheduled, in the sense that in spite of the virtual environment the organizers still managed to alternate between interactive sessions with analysts/the Spring cohort and less interactive panel/presentation sessions. I quite liked the overviews of each division that was given, including Global Markets, IB and Technology, and I feel the activities involved (preparing for quick presentations, learning excel skills) were very helpful to understanding more about the firm's operations.
