About the 2016 Deutsche Bank Internship Programme
Applications are currently ongoing for the 2016 Deutsche Bank Internship Programme and all interested members of the public are hereby informed.
We are constantly looking for the best junior talent to build and evolve our global banking business. We welcome applications from all backgrounds but there are some key eligibility criteria to consider before you apply. These criteria are consistently applied across global locations but where mentioned in the information below it may be worth seeking more specific guidance in some instances.
We’re looking for people of outstanding academic achievement, but we take a range of factors into consideration, not only a GPA or equivalent. In some countries, a minimum academic level is a requirement. More importantly than pure academic grades, we’re looking for people with the brightest minds, a genuine passion for working in global banking, and a real interest in Deutsche Bank as a place to develop their career.
Skills and Qualifications
You should not only be passionate about the world of finance, but also show a keen interest in your chosen field. You already have a record of outstanding academic achievement and you’re eager to go on learning at the same intensive rate. So you’ll thrive on working in a highly collaborative environment with some of the best minds in banking. You’ll also be as motivated and ambitious as we are. Finally, because communication is key to everything we do –all our people need to be fluent in English (and, for some roles, at least one other language). Speaking German is not essential outside of Germany.
In general, our programmes our designed for a specific profile as follows:
Spring into Banking – first year students of a three year degree or second year students of a four year degree
Internship Programme – penultimate year students
Off-cycle Internship – penultimate year students who need to complete work experience as part of their course requirements
Associate Internship – first year of an MBA degree with 3-5 years’ work experience
Graduate Programme – final year students or within 12 months of graduation. (You must have no more than 1 year of permanent work experience).
Associate Programme – MBA graduates with 3-5 years’ work experience or those completing a relevant PhD
Most of our opportunities are focussed on those with an undergraduate degree or an MBA. However, there are roles that require a specific skill set or background built up during your PhD or Master’s degree. If you’re a Master’s graduate, you’ll join the Analyst Training Program. If you’ve gained your PhD, you’ll enter at either Analyst or Associate level, depending on the relevance of your studies to banking and your previous work experience.
Overseas students/Exchange Programmes
If you are studying overseas or you are part of an exchange programme you are still able to apply for our programmes. It’s all about being proactive. Do your research thoroughly, and apply in plenty of time online. Although you may not have a chance to meet directly with us on campus, everyone has to submit their application online, so the recruitment process is the same for all.
Country of Origin
We aim to hire and develop people from local talent pools wherever possible. However, there are some exceptions. In some countries, we do accept international applications. For the latest details, check our site regularly, or ask your local Careers Office.
How to Apply
As a leading global bank, we receive significant volumes of applications every year. This section of the site aims to give you an overview of the application process, including typical timescales.
The interview process for our graduate programmes is designed to stretch your mind and help us get to know you in depth. Typically you can expect to attend two interviews, focusing on the core competencies we need and involving discussion about your degree and extracurricular life. In addition, there may be some online assessment tests, which you will find both stimulating and challenging. Of course, we’ll let you know exactly what’s going to happen before the process begins.
At the end of your interview, you should ask what the next step will be and when you can expect a response. It’s a good idea to take contact details and ask whether you can call or email if you haven’t received a decision within the agreed timeframe.
