UBS Insights Week is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to learn about working in financial services before joining a Summer Internship.
This year, students studying at a European university attended the program in our brand new London office at 5 Broadgate. During the week, participants completed fast-paced workshop sessions, were taken on an exclusive trading floor tour and learnt valuable tips on how to impress during our assessment process.
The attendees also gained an understanding of their chosen business area through practical workshops. This included a trading game for Investment Banking participants and an Operations simulation game for the Corporate Centre participants.
They also had first-hand experience of life as a graduate trainee through work-shadowing, graduate panel sessions and networking lunches. These activities gave them the opportunity to interact with employees currently on the Graduate Training Program as well senior members of staff.
One of the highlights of the week was a tour of one our trading floors, where participants were able to watch our London traders in action. The students were also shown around our Innovation Lab in Canary Wharf. Here they learnt about how our cutting-edge technology is helping shape the future of financial services.
At the end of the week, some students completed an assessment for our 2018 Summer Internship. They attended professional skills sessions, as well as a Q&A session with the Junior Talent Team, to help them prepare.
