1st & 2nd Year Internship Process

Students in first and second year have the opportunity to participate in an internship prior to applying to the Capital Markets Program (CMP). This allows students to participate in meetings, learn about the fund, and get a better understanding of the program expectations.

 

Students interested in the internship should participate in all the open sessions/workshops on Capital Markets offered by the Career Centre. The recruitment process will be very competitive and selective. A target of 10 students are selected each year based on qualification, skills, and need. Students interested will need to submit an application and participate in an interview. Normally takes place at the end of the Fall term.

 

Selected interns will need to apply to the CMP at the end of their second year. You must meet the minimum requirements below and complete the application process to be considered for an interview for the CMP.

CMP Application Process

We don't expect that you come into the program with all the knowledge and skills necessary. That is something we will teach you and help you develop over the course of the program. However, we're looking for students passionate about Finance and the Capital Markets. Because we are running an actual fund with many moving parts and much at stake, we require a commitment for the full program. Many students, will note that this also requires between 15-20 hours a week, so as a candidate, you must be able to prioritize and manage your time effectively to be able to handle this. On top of all this, we're looking for students that can fit into the culture, add value to the fund, commit the necessary time, be motivated to succeed in finance, and acquire the knowledge in investments and finance.
