Practitioner Seminars (Non-examined)

These seminars are designed to highlight the experiences of major institutions dealing with large-scale risk. Deutsche Bank has generously agreed to provide high-level involvement in developing seminars that are closely integrated into the teaching of the programme. Practitioners from other fields may also participate in this aspect of the programme in the future.

Internships (optional)

The programme will work with sponsors to actively organise internships directly related to the programme and interests of students.

Deutsche Bank offers a 9-week Analyst Internship Programme for graduates and applications are currently open for opportunities in Summer 2013. Please see the link below for details of the programme and the divisions in which opportunities are available (including Risk) and the relevant application deadlines.
