The Academy of Finance is a rigorous academic program for students who are highly motivated and skilled in all aspects of Computer Applications, Accounting, Business, and Finance.
The paid professional internship is a critical component of the Academy experience. Students experience situations they can expect if they pursue a career in that field.
Here’s how a paid, professional Academy of Finance internship works:
- Academy juniors apply and interview for the job;
- Students are paid at least minimum wage to work for a defined time period, often part-time for 6-10 weeks during the school year or full-time during the summer;
- Students report directly to their supervisors in the workplace and benefit from periodic supervision and guidance from staff at the Academy; and,
Students and employers hold themselves and one another to a high standard of leadership, professionalism, and accountability.
