    Most internships in finance in the USA involve a fair amount of data entry and analysis. Interns learn to use the databases on which their organizations operate, and input and track financial data. They are responsible for updating the database, and preparing regular reports to share with the company.

  • Audits

    Auditing is an essential part of the finance world, and is extremely important for every business. Interns learn about the process of ensuring that financial statements are accurately representing the business’ financial situation. They learn about the audit process, different types of audits, and become familiar with operating practices in their industry.

  • Budgeting

    Interns learn about both drafting and  evaluating budget proposals. They learn how to use financial data to determine the correct amount of money to allocate to specific areas of a business, and how to evaluate an organization’s short and long-term needs. The experience conducting cost-benefit analysis and utilizing data to make decisions is incredibly valuable.

  • Risk Analysis

    Risk analysis, closely related to competitive analysis and market research, is important for companies when it comes to making plans for the future. Risk analysis interns may play a key role in launching new products, planning for restructuring, or rebranding efforts. They may handle economic data, market trends, and customer demand.
