Student's Experience | View All

  • "It is just like having an internship at any of these banks, where you experience the real feeling of what it is like to work there. In my project, I felt like I was a consultant for this bank and in my job I got to interact with different employees from different departments." -Santiago Lora, BNP PARIBUS, London, 2010
  • "Working on a trading floor gives me an opportunity to closely observe how my colleagues deal with their daily business, such as risk analysis and hedging, so the highly-profitable trades are no longer mystery to me."
    -Boya Wang, Royal Bank of Scotland Project, London, 2010
  • "This project was a phenomenal experience to work in the heart of Wall Street. I gained invaluable exposure to the operations of major investment banks while enjoying New York City."
    -Aubrey Scarborough, BNP Paribas Project, New York, 2010
  • "The Wall Street Project Center was an amazing MQP experience for me. Not only was I able to learn a lot about the industry while working on the Mortgage-Backed Securities floor of Bank of America, but I was able to meet tons of different people from WPI and Bank of America. It was an awesome networking opportunity." -Emily S. Herries, Bank of America, New York, 2010
  • "The WPI Wall Street Project Center is a great stepping stone for motivated students who are looking to make the transition to a career in the financial services industry, it provides both the student and sponsor with an opportunity to accomplish a real world project while being a part of an unique college experience." -Jason Tondreau, Bank of America Project, New York, 2010
