Success Stories

Case studies

Lili - Investment Bank. Internship

The first week is quite exciting, as it is completely a new financial environment to me. By sitting around the Corporate Finance Directors, I have a chance to see how they set up and maintain the relationship with clients. Their excellent telephone manner, efficiency and professional knowledge is something I should learn. I really appreciate this opportunity to see how Investment Banks work, what each department does and what skills should be developed. I believe this experience will help me identify what jobs I should apply for in the future.

At work, I also have chance to attend some internal meetings and presentations, which really impressed me. I also realise that there is a big gap between academic study and the real business environment, general English and Business English, especially when the latter is combined with a huge amount of financial information.
