Students are encouraged to explore internship opportunities in financial organizations to further improve their understanding of the work of quants in financial markets. Students apply for these opportunities directly; help with doing this is provided in the first year Proseminar.

Some examples of organizations at which our students have been summer interns in the past are listed below.

Some international interships are pursued by FSU students -- see the International Programs website,

It is possible to obtain 1 hour credit for an internship, by registering for MAT 5945 (Graduate Professional Internship), with the Director's approval. See the Mathematics Advisor for the necessary paperwork before you start the internship.
