    The Role

  • It was truly interesting and valuable experience. I had a great time discovering Finance while working on challenging tasks and meeting industry professionals.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • The team was very welcoming and friendly but maintained a professional approach. Each of them tried to assign and help me to try out different tasks at the same time being open for questions and support.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Each task was explained carefully, the team and supervisors always open for questions. I was also provided with workshops and more challenging tasks from the senior management team.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • The begging of the internship was more slow-paced but as I showed initiative to try different tasks from different teams later on had a fully busy day.

  • I had to prepare tasks on my own which later on were revised and incorporated into bigger projects.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
