You’re targeting a career in investment banking after graduation. Or maybe you haven’t considered that as a career. Either way, we invite you to apply to our intensive training program that will help you build the skills and knowledge you need to succeed.


Early exposure and skill building

Barclays is partnering with ModernGuild to offer ambitious, talented freshmen like you the chance to participate in an exclusive four-week training program that will help you learn the skills needed for a successful career in investment banking. As a participant, you spend several hours a week in one-on-one virtual training sessions with a coach working on rapid skill-acquisition exercises and networking with Barclays’ professionals. The result? You’ll have the core skills, self-confidence and relationships to land your dream job. In fact, after you successfully complete the program you’ll be invited to interview with Barclays for our highly competitive 2019 summer internship program. Although the accelerator is only for investment banking, we still would like to get to know you if your interest is in other areas. Let us know if you’re interested in Technology or Sales and Trading when you apply. Those divisions will consider you for interviews as part of the recruiting cycle.

As one of our diversity programs, the ModernGuild Finance Accelerator is designed to attract and educate high-achieving, underrepresented candidates, including female, Black, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, and LGBTQIA students, as well as veterans and students with disabilities.
