For roles in the United States: Candidates must be enrolled in a four year bachelor's degree, a master's degree, a Phd program, or international equivalent program. Undergraduates must have completed their junior year prior to the commencement of employment, and masters/Phd candidates must have one year of full-time studies remaining prior to joining. A cumulative minimum GPA of 3.4 is strongly preferred. Official transcripts will be required to verify GPA, and show evidence of academic success. We hire students from across academic disciplines.

Our preference is for candidates to have the following:

  • Strong communication skills (both oral and written) and the ability to effectively interact with senior management and successfully communicate with and influence others
  • Strong analytical (math/financial) skills and attention to detail
  • Basic understanding of accounting and financial concepts
  • Extracurricular activities, internships and academic projects indicate strong interpersonal and leadership skills
  • Ability to work in a high pressure and fast paced environment
  • Good judgment and strong reasoning and analytical skills to quickly assess situations and provide applicable solutions

At UBS, our goal is to have the most objectively based candidate evaluation process possible, one that gives every candidate an equal opportunity to compete for available positions.

We use a number of tools - including numerical and logical reasoning tests, interviews, team exercises and presentations - to help us evaluate your individual skills and qualities and assess your potential against the requirements of a given role. Assessment tools may vary from region to region.

We evaluate each candidate against seven "core competencies," a term we use to describe professional qualities and business skills. We see these core competencies as essential building-blocks for success at UBS. Combined with the necessary effort on your part and training from us, they form the basis upon which you can launch and develop a successful career at our firm. The list of core competencies is given below. To promote objectivity throughout the process, you will be scored on these criteria by a number of different individuals.

  • Problem analysis
  • Judgment and decision making
  • Innovation
  • Communication and impact
  • Drive and commitment
  • Teamwork and collaboration
  • Planning and organizing
