KFS 2013 Global Financial Services Internship Program
Program Overview The KFS Global Financial Services Internship Program invites undergraduate Korean students and students passionate about promoting the mission of the Korea Finance Society (KFS) to apply for summer internships at leading financial institutions. These competitive internships are designed to help students gain access to rewarding opportunities in international financial centers and act as a valuable step for students interested in careers in global finance.
Korea Finance Society facilitates the exchange of information and ideas in finance and builds bridges between Korea and the United States. The mission of the organization is to promote the global influence of Koreans and Korean-Americans in finance through networking, education and mentoring.
Program Highlights In 2012, KFS partnered with leading institutions including Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Moon Capital and Morgan Stanley. We invited high-achieving, motivated students from top-tier universities in the U.S. and South Korea to apply for internships.
7 selected candidates out of 300+ applicants received internships at one of the partner institutions
Senior members of KFS acted as “senior mentors” and members of the KFS Young Executive Committee (recent university graduates working in finance) served as “junior mentors”
Successful internships and overwhelmingly positive feedback on strength of program has validated the importance of this initiative
For the summer of 2013, KFS is looking to expand the program to include a wider range of sponsors and opportunities for students.
KFS is aiming to have 10 participating firms during the summer of 2013
Each firm would provide 1-3 internship opportunities
