Intern Picks: Finance Internships

May 10, 2012

Every day, our intern Ting gets a sneak peek at all of the new internships being posted daily on Each week he’ll choose a theme and highlight a few of the new internships he thinks are cool/useful/interesting.

By Ting-Tien Wee

Over the past month, “Intern Picks” has covered majors such as marketing, communications, and computer science. I noticed that one of the most popular internship titles have something to do with finance, so this will be the next major I will cover. Finance, like marketing and management, is yet another aspect of business administration, but how exactly is finance incorporated into a company? According to Wikipedia, finance refers to “the management, creation and study of money, banking, credit, investments, assets, and liabilities.” As a business major, I always understood finance as the science of distributing a business’ assets appropriately. The typical finance major will be studying courses dealing with investments, banking, financial management, and more. If you are a finance major, then pay attention to this week’s post ‘cause we have several new and exciting finance internships headed your way!

Here are a few of our top finance internships of the week:

Thanks for pointing out the great internship opportunities available for students on your site. Hopefully students look towards the international intern placements more as a great way to pick up some global skills, learn about a new culture and a language and walk away with amazing bullet points that can help their resumes stand out.
