Programs for Undergraduates

The Sophomore Diversity Program provides talented college sophomores from diverse backgrounds with first-hand experience in the financial services industry. The program offers outstanding college sophomores from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds (Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino and/or Native American descent) the opportunity to participate in a ten-week summer internship program at our offices in New York City. Additionally, students who successfully complete the summer internship program will be eligible to receive a $5,000 scholarship and may be invited back for a junior year internship.

The program offers:

  • A company orientation, followed by divisional training before starting work in your group for the summer. 
  • A mentor to help you determine your strengths and plan your career.
  • Access to the senior leaders who can provide support and guidance throughout the summer. 
  • Networking and firm-wide events that will expose you to all the areas within the Bank, and provide a broader sense of our organization.
  • A balance of work, social events and networking opportunities.

The Credit Suisse Women's Mentor Program offers unique opportunities for outstanding female college sophomores to learn more about Global Markets (Equity Research/Sales & Trading), Technology or Investment Banking & Capital Markets. This selective program offers numerous benefits, including early access to Credit Suisse leaders, technical skills training, mentorship, and shadowing & networking opportunities. Selected participants are invited to attend an in-office multi-day career development program, in addition to engaging in an on-going mentor relationship. Participants are paired with a senior level mentor in their respective division. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to participate in an accelerated interview process for an internship after their junior year.
