About Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse is a leading wealth manager with strong investment banking capabilities and strong presence in our home market Switzerland. We seek to follow a balanced approach to wealth management, aiming to capitalize on the large pool of wealth within mature markets as well as the significant growth in wealth in Asia Pacific and other emerging markets. Founded in 1856, we today have a global reach with operations in over 50 countries and 46,640 employees from over 150 different nations.

Our broad footprint helps us to generate a geographically balanced stream of revenues and net new assets and allows us to capture growth opportunities around the world. We serve our clients through three regionally focused divisions: Swiss Universal Bank, International Wealth Management and Asia Pacific. These regional businesses are supported by two other divisions specializing in investment banking capabilities: Global Markets and Investment Banking & Capital Markets. The Strategic Resolution Unit consolidates the remaining portfolios from the former non-strategic units plus additional businesses and positions that do not fit with our strategic direction. Our business divisions cooperate closely to provide holistic financial solutions, including innovative products and specially tailored advice.

We will invest in your development with ongoing opportunities for training, networking and mobility. Join us and let's shape the future of Credit Suisse together.

About the Program
Global Markets interns spend their first week in a comprehensive training program covering all aspects of the markets, geared toward acquiring the knowledge, terminology and technical skills required for the program. Interns may expect to review specific products and businesses, participate in case studies/simulations, and receive training on tools such as Excel and Bloomberg.

Interns will meet with representatives from each desk to begin the placement process, assisted by the campus recruiting team. Following a placement day in April, interns are allocated to dedicated desks, where they will spend nine weeks, allowing them to build significant knowledge in an area.

All interns are supported with a mentor to help structure their time at the bank and assist with networking opportunities. A dedicated desk coordinator will manage your daily workload, and provide feedback in formal reviews. This additional support is designed to present an inclusive view of the role and help qualify interns for consideration of a full-time role upon graduation. The summer internship is the bank’s core hiring channel for the full-time Analyst class.

Degree Requirements
To be eligible, you will have completed or be due to complete a Bachelors, Masters or PhD qualification (or equivalent) in any discipline.

All applicants must be in their penultimate year of study, be available for the full 10 weeks and be able to start full-time employment in July 2018.
