Benefits of Taking an Internship

Taking an internship can provide numerous benefits to our students, including:

  • Practical Experience: Internships provide students with practical experience in the financial industry, enabling them to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in the classroom to real-world situations.

  • Networking Opportunities: Internships provide students with opportunities to network with professionals in the financial industry. This can lead to job offers, mentorship, and valuable connections that can help students throughout their careers.


  • Skill Development: Internships provide students with opportunities to develop new skills and enhance existing ones. This includes skills such as communication, teamwork, time management, and problem-solving.


  • Career Exploration: Internships provide students with opportunities to explore different career paths within the financial industry. This can help them make informed decisions about their future career paths and determine which areas they are most interested in pursuing.


  • Resume Building: Internships provide students with valuable experience to include on their resumes, making them more attractive to potential employers.

Internship Statistics

QFIN students complete an average of three internships during their course of study. Over 90% of students complete at least one internship in a finance-related institution. Students are also allowed to take a leave of absence for one or more semesters during the programme to do full-time internships.

Many of our students have had the opportunity to complete internships overseas in locations such as Shenzhen, Beijing, Qingdao, and Shanghai in Mainland China, as well as Taipei, Tokyo, Singapore, New York, London, and Frankfurt.

Career Support

We offer individual and group career coaching, training, and advice to our students. These workshops are designed to equip students with a complete set of skills and techniques, from identifying job leads to writing effective resumes, interviewing, and job hunting strategies.

Additionally, practical coaching and drilling sessions will be offered, such as mock interviews, sharing sessions with alumni and industry professionals, mentorship and buddy programs, and more.

We strongly encourage our students to participate in these career activities early on in their studies. This will provide them with a clear understanding of the expectations and challenges of finding a job or internship, and enable them to gain valuable insights and skills to enhance their job hunting success.
