Since our program begins in early June, we encourage our students to focus on their academics in the summer semester. We do not permit students to pursue internships during the summer semester of study—rather, we encourage focusing on academics and ensuring a high GPA and strong understanding of the course material when you head into recruiting in the fall.

However, we do encourage students to seek internships in the fall and spring semesters to continue building their professional finance network, strengthen their practical skills and further enhance their resume. Many students apply the networking skills they honed during the summer Professional Development Program to pursue internships.

Recently, students have interned at the following companies while enrolled in the Villanova MSF:

  • Bluestone Capital Management
  • Main Line Equity Partners
  • Kroll Bond Rating Agency
  • Chartwell Investment Partners
  • Arzoo LLC
  • Delancy Street Partners
  • Bryant Park Capital
  • Guardian Capital Partners
  • Pensionmark Financial Group
