Learning Beyond the Classroom
Students can apply for a finance internship and work in a variety of positions including investments, corporate finance, banking, and financial planning. Students also get involved in stock market simulations within the classroom environment and outside the classroom in their own groups and investment clubs.
Semester-based Internships and Summer Jobs provide students the opportunity to get additional hands-on experience in the field. The following is a sample list of firms that have employed Girard School students in a variety of full-time, internship, and summer Finance positions:
