Summer Analyst Program Overview: (6/3/2024 8/9/2024)

The Risk Management Summer Analyst Program at MUFG is designed to help you learn how the Bank maintains a disciplined approach to identifying, assessing, managing, reporting, and mitigating risks.

Our 10-week Summer Analyst Program begins in early June and is structured to provide rising seniors with hands-on experience and business exposure in the world of Risk Management. You will be placed in a specific group that allows you to concentrate and quickly develop the skills and knowledge required to become an integral part of the team. You will work alongside MUFG professionals at all levels who will serve as your instructors and mentors. Interns also have the opportunity to attend learning sessions led by Americas Risk Management professionals in all of the Risk Disciplines at the bank. The Risk Program is designed to help you experience just what it’s like to manage risk within a Global Investment Bank.

In this role, the Analyst will have opportunities to interact with colleagues within Americas Risk Management and the Lines of Business and Products Owners while rotating through activities in their assigned area of a given risk discipline. With the goal of learning the components of the MUFG Risk Framework and how it is implemented within the Bank to effectively assess, monitor, and control risk. Additionally, the Analyst will have the opportunity to work on cross functional projects to gain insights into how the various risk frameworks intersect and support the overall management of risk at the Bank and support the strategic goals of MUFG.

Based on background, interest, and firm need – interns will be selected to work in one of the following areas:

  • Credit Risk: The risk of loss and reduction in capital, and weakened financial resiliency, arising from borrowers or counterparties not paying as agreed on loans or other contractual agreements.

  • Market Risk: The risk that changes in interest rates, foreign exchange rates, and other market risk factors will impact the value of certain assets or liabilities that the enterprise owns, and could result in losses that reduce profitability or negatively impact our capital cushion

  • Liquidity Risk: The risk that the enterprise will not have, or may simply be perceived as not having, enough cash, liquid assets, or fulfill liabilities to fund loans, pay operating expenses, or other contractual obligations as they come due

  • Interest Rate Risk: The risk that changing interest rates could adversely impact interest income from loans and other credit products and interest expense paid to depositors and other funding sources, potentially reducing net interest income and overall operating profit

  • Operational Risk: The risk from events which may have an adverse effect on current projected financial condition and resilience arising from inadequate or failed internal processes or systems, human error or misconduct, or adverse external events.

  • Compliance / Financial Crimes: The potential that events will have an adverse effect on current or projected financial condition and resilience arising from violations of, or non-conformance with, laws, rules, regulations, prescribed practices, internal policies and procedures, or ethical standards. Compliance risk also includes the risk of offering products and services, or engaging in practices, that may be perceived as harmful or negatively impactful to consumers.

  • Enterprise Risk Management: Risks resulting from reputational and strategic events. Also, encompassing Risk Governance functions such as risk appetite etc.

  • Quantitative Risk Control: The use of any Models invariably presents Model Risk, which is the potential for adverse consequences (e.g., financial loss, poor business and strategic decision-making, or damage to an organization’s reputation) from decisions based on incorrect or misused Model outputs and reports.

Support & Guidance

Your assigned mentor/manager will provide goals and professional development guidance and conduct performance reviews as a commitment to our summer Analysts. You will also have the opportunity to network with employees across different business groups and at all levels of the organization. In our open and inclusive environment, senior colleagues will know who you are and will see the work you do. You will leave with a better understanding of the world of risk management.

Career Progression

At the end of the program, the opportunity exists to receive an offer for full time employment upon graduation. Based on performance during the assignment, a percentage of the intern cohort will be placed in a three-year rotation program, while other offers may be considered for a role in the area where they completed their internship.
