MUFG

IT Audit Intern

June - August 2018 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

I enjoyed learning about the audit practice in the banking industry. It was a great way to grow individually and receive a lot of mentorship from professionals who have been in the industry.

What I wish was different

Advice

I would recommend whoever interns here, to have an open mind and be prepared to contribute to the audit practice. The audit organization is growing and there is a lot of opportunity to work on audits that you want to learn more about.

Summer Analyst

June - August 2018 • Tempe, AZ

What I liked

I was able to get involved and work on large projects for my department. Unlike many other internships where you are given mundane office work, MUFG allowed me to use my knowledge from the classroom to actual work situations.

What I wish was different

The one thing that I wish was different was the lack of efficient communication with teams that are not centrally located within the office. In order to get a project started it required many meetings and approvals which was time that could have been spent working on the project.

Advice

Try to get involved in as many opportunities that you can while you are there, they want you to try and the culture is accepting and has the tools to help you succeed.

Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • Oakland, CA

What I liked

I appreciated how everyone was friendly, eager to help, and seeking ways to provide learning opportunities. My manager was extremely flexible about how I structured my hours and willing to listen to my feedback about how to change what I was working on. Overall, my impression was that the environment at the Bank was much more laid-back than a typical accounting internship.

What I wish was different

At times, I felt like I did not have enough to do. However, when I shared this concern, I immediately got extra projects which allowed me to network with other departments and led to a job offer with a different department than the one I officially interned with.

Advice

Remember, an internship is an extended interview. Take advantage of every opportunity to network and show your skills!

Sales and Trading Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The connection to Villanova that MUFG has is unmatched. There are so many alumni working at the bank willing and able to meet with you and help you in your time in the internship. The internship taught me so much and really helped me launch my career. For sales and trading, MUFG participates in a rotational program so interns get to see various parts of the trading floor which was an incredible opportunity to see where you fit best.

What I wish was different

For sales and trading, the hours are very early in comparison to banking hours, so just being aware that unless you live very close to the city, you would likely want to have a place to live in Manhattan for the summer.

Advice

Use the opportunity to make connections! This bank has such a flat leadership structure that I was able to get lunch with the CEO throughout my time, and any person I emailed always made time to sit down with me and tell me about their experience. In an industry so focused on building relationships, it is unique to have that level of access to senior executives in an intern role, especially with such a large alumni base from Villanova.

Summer Analyst for Interest Rates and FX Derivative Sales

June - August 2017 • New York City, NY

What I liked

MUFG provided a great professional internship experience. The flat structure made senior managers very open to teaching me skills and telling me about their roles at the bank. I got real responsibilities and worked closely with employees of all rank on my desk. We also got the opportunity to split into teams and deliver a mock client pitch to a panel of managing directors.

What I wish was different

Advice

Do your share of networking. MUFG is very open to interns shadowing employees from other groups than the one you're assigned to, so definitely make the most of it and learn as much about the other positions as possible. You never know, you could possibly find another group you love more than the one you worked in during the summer.

Summer Analyst

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The culture at MUFG was great, I appreciated becoming a part of the team and learning the ins and outs of the business.

What I wish was different

I didn't like my role as much as an Auditor. The work was not as compelling to me as I was hoping it would be so in hindsight I wish I could have found a role I truly enjoyed.

Advice

I may not have liked my role but there was a lot to learn regardless. If you are not thrilled with your job don't brush off any lessons because you never know what skills are applicable at future opportunities.

What I liked

The bank's culture fosters an excellent internship experience.

What I wish was different

I wish that there were more projects that involved other members from the internship class.

Advice

You are expected to ask questions to create an understanding of the bank and the industry. Do not ignore the opportunity to learn from senior level people.
