As today is the final deadline to apply for EY Financial Advisory’s Business Advisory Program for internship and full-time employment, we thought it would be a great opportunity to highlight some of the things that makes EY Financial Advisory stand out.
On the consulting side of the business, EY strives to improve business performance while managing risk. They focus on business-led and technology-enabled transformations. While that may not seem much different than other consulting firms, some of the industries they are working with might.
- Government & Public Sector
- Consumer Products
- Media & Entertainment
- Oil & Gas
- Power & Utilities
The major difference with EY is their dominant position in financial services through their Financial Services Office. Interns and full-time employees may get experience on the financial side through the Business Advisor Program.
The Business Advisor Program introduces interns and new associates a multi-layer experience. “With each engagement, you can expect to build leadership, communication, and client-management skills, as well as sharpen your problem-solving capabilities.”
On Monday, representatives from EY, including Anna Blair Bullock, Class of 2015, spoke with students about the Business Advisory Program (BAP) in the Financial Services Office (FSO).
The BAP is a three-year long program that involves multiple projects ranging from six to nine months in length. The projects will focus on financial services risk management and performance improvement. The presenters emphasized that people who fit well in this program love financial markets, working in teams, and will make the most of opportunities given to them.
The BAP internship program is a shorter version of the BAP and includes many similar aspects. The goal of the internship is to prepare interns for the possibility of returning after their senior year and offering interns great training that can help them further their careers.
