Here's what employers have said about Shidler College of Business interns

(anonymous evaluations)

“Our Shidler Intern did not look at challenges as a roadblock. He approached them with a positive outlook, and finds ways to overcome them. He also asked for constant feedback to make sure he was on track.”

“Our Shidler Intern performed a good overall review of the Japanese department store companies and stocks, and fairly comprehensive industry analysis is the basis for any good equity investment professional. She also performed one-off analysis of companies in other industries, particularly some hard-to-value internet companies, so she demonstrated versatility in research ability.”

“Our Shidler Intern gets an “A”. Specifically, he performed very well when he was asked to take-over the sales management reporting activities. This involved validating, generating, proofing and disseminating key sales reports for Business Banking that impacted incentive compensation payments and Chairman’s Circle corporate-wide sales performance recognition. He also quickly picked up the score-plus underwriting process and activities. This is a core position function as a financial analyst. He suggested then implemented improvements to the excel worksheet tools used by BLAD to include maximum sensitivity scenario calculations.”
