Best Financial Services Internships

Vault surveyed thousands of current and former interns about their internship programs. Vault’s Best Financial Services Internships represent the highest-rated finance-related internships.

  • Survey Methodology

    In order to compile the 2017 Vault Top Internships Rankings, Vault invited more than 400 organizations to participate in our 2016 Internship Survey. We gathered information both from organizations that sponsor internships and from their interns. The internship sponsors provided Vault with descriptions of their programs, as well as details on the number of interns hired, duration of program, locations and departments in which interns are placed, and application requirements. We also asked current and former interns to comment on and rate their internship experiences on a variety of factors, including the application process, compensation and perks, quality of life, meaningfulness of assignments and training, and full-time employment prospects.

    This year, more than 11,000 interns responded to our survey. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest and 1 being the lowest, respondents were asked to rate their internship experiences in five areas:

    • Quality of Life (office culture, hours, work-life balance, flexibility)
    • Compensation & Benefits (pay structure, subsidized expenses, office space, perks)
    • Interview Process (application process, requirements, number of interviews)
    • Career Development (training and mentoring, quality of assignments, real-life experience, networking opportunities)
    • Full-time Employment Prospects (opportunity to obtain a full-time job with this organization)

    These ratings were averaged to determine an overall score for each program. Vault then compiled rankings of the top internship programs in 12 different areas. The Best Financial Services Internships reflect the highest-rated finance-related internships.
