Sample cover letter for Internship position at UBS


Business analyst

Dear Sir or Madam

I am currently a junior at SKEMA BUSINESS SCHOOL majoring in business with a concentration in finance. Throughout my college career I have excelled in all of my finance courses and led several challenging projects. My courses have provided me with a strong background in the methodologies required for successfully analyzing and synthesizing important financial information and in preparing documentation to assist management when making critical business decisions. I am a quick learner and enjoy the challenges of doing comparative, quantitative, and cash - flow analysis. I believe my strengths in these areas would serve me well as an intern in HSBCprogram.

In addition to my relevant coursework, my internship with CIH BANK provided me with a great opportunity to use my knowledge and skills and apply them to the real world.

I very much enjoyed assisting customers with their financial decision - making and I found that my excellent interpersonal skills served me well when dealing with challenging clients. Furthermore I am especially excited about the program that HSBC offers students and I feel that this opportunity would provide me with additional knowledge and skills that will add to my abilities to positively serve clients in the field.

I have enclosed my CV showing my detailed experience. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you in advance for reading my application.

Yours sincerely
