The World Bank Treasury is one of the few places where you work at the nexus of finance, innovation & international development. The Summer Internship is the only program in the World Bank dedicated to college students.
The Treasury Summer Internship Program is a junior professional training program designed to develop the skills necessary to have an exciting and rewarding career in the financial industry. The Program aims to bring exceptional college students with a demonstrated interest in a financial career to support the World Bank’s development mandate. The internship lays the foundation to become a Junior Analyst, a two-year position on one Treasury team, immediately after the intern graduates from their degree program. Interns are expected to be in their second to final year in the equivalent of a four-year college degree program.
Treasury Summer Interns will work full-time for ten weeks from May 28 through August 5, 2024, in Washington, DC. Interns receive a custom onboarding program in the first week before beginning three three-week rotations across Treasury teams. Throughout the summer, interns participate in weekly discussions with the program director and attend a career perspectives speaker series to hear from various Treasury officers, managers, and directors. Interns have access to the nearly 300-employee Treasury, including meetings with the Vice President & Treasurer. Interns complete each rotation with a presentation to their respective team and complete the internship by presenting their work in a capstone project to the management team.
- Must be enrolled in the second-to-last year of the equivalent of a four-year college degree program with a demonstrated interest in finance, business, economics, or a related field;
- Must be prepared to graduate with a college degree between January and September 2025;
- Must be in good academic standing at their college or university;
- Must be available full-time through the duration of the internship;
- Must not have a concurrent employment contract or internship.
Any candidate who is found to have misrepresented their application may be disqualified or terminated.
