Program majors and minors are encouraged to complete internships to gain practical experience in financial services markets and institutions. ISU student interns have an opportunity to learn and contribute, as well as to experience what it is like to work in a variety of financial services organizations on challenging projects that impact business. Internships provide a rich opportunity for the business to view the potential of a future hire and give students an opportunity to work side-by-side with experts in their area of study. Student interns learn while working and have the satisfaction of seeing their work make an impact while gaining valuable job experience and college credit.
Our students annually win national competitions for the opportunity to work in prestigious internship positions. Depending on the employers participating each year, internships may be offered in the following areas: public accounting, banking, credit card operations, employee benefits administration, financial management, financial planning and consulting, human resources, information technology, internal audit, insurance sales and marketing, insurance operations, risk management, and securities brokerage.
