The Finance Internship (FIN 393) is an elective finance course offered to undergraduate students who are declared Finance Majors. You MUST include an unofficial transcript with your application.
Students interested in FIN 393 must complete an Application for the Department of Finance Internship. This can be obtained from the Finance Department office. It may be returned to the Finance Department office or emailed to the internship coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants must
- Be declared Finance majors,
- Have a cumulative DePaul GPA of 2.8 at the time of application, and
- Have completed the prerequisite course of FIN 310.
Once the student is approved by the Internship Coordinator, he or she will be notified via email. Then the intern will be able to register for the class through Campus Connect.
Internships should be found independently. DePaul’s Career Center has many resources to assist students in this search including the Alumni Sharing Knowledge and the Experience job posting system. Please contact the Finance Department internship coordinator at mhocter@depaul if you are not having success in an independent search.
The student must spend 12 hours per week for the 10-week quarter at the internship firm. A flexible schedule is worked out between the intern and the supervisor. The internship may be compensated, but students are required to pay tuition for this course.
In addition, interns will meet with the internship coordinator as a group once during the quarter. The class schedule will be determined in the syllabus, which will be emailed to the student upon approval for the course. Student deliverables will include a brief paper on the intern’s firm and its industry position, and a research paper which will focus on a topic of interest to the intern’s firm. In addition, students will be evaluated on their performance in the internship by their supervisor.
For further information, contact Mary Ann Hocter at mhocter@depaul or the Department of Finance secretary at (312) 362-8826.
