The internship has been thoroughly enjoyable overall, incorporating a number of varied and challenging exercises alongside stimulating desk work and personal research. Taking part in the trading game in particular was a fun and engaging experience, giving us both a team and individual perspective on managing a portfolio with 'real' consequences of our choices.
It's a very challenging and stimulating experience. I am learning a lot both in my current role and by shadowing and meeting people in different teams. Everybody is very helpful and the work environment is focused on excellence, without being toxically competitive. I feel I have responsibilities and I am treated as a true employee.
Doing an internship at UBS was a very unique experience, I learnt a lot about trading and finance in general. Although the internship is quite challenging, I am really happy I had the chance to do it. It is enjoyable because you have the opportunity to explore different teams, so lots of space to find teams that fit your skill set best.
I have enjoyed my placement at UBS so far, as I have been given large amounts of responsibility and I work within a very friendly international team. It will definitely prepare me for whatever I do in my career after University. I would recommend this placement to anyone looking for a year in work.
I really enjoyed it. Getting involved in the markets everyday is a great thing to do because it means you are much more read up on everyday politics and events. Also it was great fun being in a trading environment, which I feel is a great place to work because it brings a good buzz.
Attended the UBS Women's Breakfast in October 2018. This was a great event to network with individuals from the different UBS teams and other attendees. I really enjoyed listening about the culture that exists at UBS and how to apply for certain graduate opportunities which exist within the firm. I would definitely recommend
The insight week provided a great overview of the banking industry. I thought the variety of workshops, sessions and talks available was suitably broad given it’s our first foray into finance. All of the staff were lovely and the information provided was great. The networking drinks were extremely useful in terms of expansion of our network.
