These are paid programmes aimed at penultimate-year students (we will also consider finalists) which run for 10 weeks during summer. You’ll be exposed to a mixture of training, social events and professional experiences. At the end of the internship, we offer the best people a place on the full time graduate programme. Internships are available for analysts (undergraduate and master’s students) and associates (MBA students).
Open to finalists and graduates our analyst programme provides the best training in the sector to help you become an active member of the team you join in the shortest time possible. The invaluable business, technical and leadership skills you’ll develop will help you thrive in the fast, multinational, dynamic environment that is Citi.

If you’re in your first year of a three-year undergraduate course or your second year of a four-year course, consider our Spring Insight programme.
