Internship Programme, Finance & Business Management

If you’re an outstanding college student, here’s a great way to add valuable industry experience to your academic knowledge. Join our 10-week summer program in J.P. Morgan Chase’s Finance department and you’ll gain a clear insight into the vital role we play in the firm’s continuing success. You’ll also start building your professional network and the skills needed for a successful career.  

What you can expect

The 10-week summer program will start with orientation and training sessions to teach you about the firm, our products, our clients and where we’re heading. From there, you’ll join a team and make a real contribution to our Finance function, where we combine sophisticated performance measurement with thorough analysis to ensure strong financial discipline throughout the firm. 

Working alongside experienced colleagues, you’ll have exposure to finance in one of our business areas or functions. Besides analyzing results, you’ll have the chance to offer insights across performance, strategy, control issues and operating models. In doing so, you’ll see just how varied, challenging and intellectually inspiring a career with us can be.

And on the job training is only part of what we offer. You’ll also be assigned a buddy and take part in networking events that will introduce you to different Finance managers and teams. You’ll be invited to our speaker series and a whole host of other interesting events, giving you the chance to meet colleagues – including senior leaders – from across the firm to start building your professional network. You may also have the opportunity to join us full-time after successful completion of the program. For those who are offered a place on the graduate programme, we'll also encourage and support you through your CIMA qualification.

I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you as well. I think its been incredibly tough for me to deal with learning that I have dyslexia and navigating what this means for me in terms of my career and it has at times really affected my confidence but I am really grateful to you and Employability because its nice to know people care about people like myself.
