Hear from our Alumni

"When I started my undergraduate degree in maths at Warwick I was not entirely sure what I wanted to do afterwards and had never considered banking.

In my second year I got a summer internship in corporate banking at a UK financial institution, which gave me the opportunity to explore different areas of the bank and I went on to apply for capital/debt markets graduate roles. I now work in the loans and acquisition finance team at Citi.

We raise loan financings for multi-national corporations, financial institutions and governments across Europe, the Middle East and Africa."
