Open to: finance students in their second to fourth year of studies
The Aalto University School of Economics is the leading business school in Finland and a globally acknowledged player in management education that previously operated with the name of Helsinki School of Economics HSE. The School of Economics is recognized for its close ties with the business world, high-quality research and an open, international atmosphere conducive to learning and personal development.
Currently the Finance Faculty is looking for Finance students willing to do the internship during summer.
Primarily Finance students in their second to fourth year of studies. Completion of a Bachelor’s thesis or other relevant experience is a plus. In previous years the majority of our interns have come from Finland, but we have also had interns from India, Iran, and the United States. First and foremost, we want dedicated people who fit well into our community, who are interested in the financial world and financial research, and who have the potential to develop into excellent researchers.
You would be working with the faculty on scientific research projects during the summer months. Exact dates are flexible. You would participate in data collection and organization for research projects. Literature reviews are another possible job. If you are a good programmer, there are many things where you could contribute. Whatever research-related skills you have, we will try to tailor your work to make the best out of those skills.
As a member of the community, you will have the opportunity to learn research skills on the job. These skills will not only be helpful in your Master’s thesis but are also in demand in many finance and consulting sector occupations. If you want to pursue an academic career, you will greatly benefit from an early integration into the research community. And of course, you will get flexible working hours and a salary.
