You will work alongside MUFG professionals at all levels who will serve as your instructors and mentors. Our summer analysts will gain exposure to a diverse client portfolio, and engage on special projects & initiatives, cultivating investigative, analytic and stakeholder management skills. Our program is designed to help you grasp what it’s like to work within a global organization focusing on Financial Crime and decide where you want to take your career.
