At the Center, we value developing the next generation of financial service professionals. In fact, in 2007, the Center launched its Summer Internship Program to help those interested in joining the field gain first-hand experience. Interns work with our investment and financial planning departments to complete performance reporting and research projects. They also participate in unique education, training, and staff shadowing opportunities.
Accordingly, we have kicked off our 2012 Summer Internship Program with this year’s intern, Kyle Branda. Kyle is a senior at Michigan State University hailing from Brooklyn, MI. He is an economics major and a member of the Michigan State Student Economics Association. His career goals are to obtain a Masters in Finance and to become either a financial advisor or financial analyst.
When asked about the internship, Kyle says, “This internship will help me reach these goals by giving me the skills necessary to create a good financial plan. It will also give me a better understanding of what goes into making investment decisions. This internship will help me determine which career path I intend to choose by presenting me with both aspects of what an advisor does and what an analyst does.”
