What is the ESCP Banking Trek?
The ESCP Banking Trek is designed for students interested in pursuing a career within the London Financial sector. Students have the chance to gain useful insights into the banking industry, while institutions are able to show students their graduate programmes and scout potential candidates from one of Europe’s highest ranked business schools.
This student-run event consisted of a week of online visits and events at major financial institution headquarters in London, including Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley. From 7th to 11th September, carefully selected students were given first-hand insight to the participating firms and their internship opportunities. Online presentations and Q&A session were designed to help understand how an investment bank operates, while also share each individual bank's culture and values. In addition, students met professionals and ESCP Alumni currently working in the industry, a valuable asset for future employment applications and network building.
A virtual edition of the Banking Trek
During these unprecedented times, the ESCP Finance Society organised the 7th edition of the Banking Trek as a fully online experience, allowing 25-30 students, carefully selected by ESCP alumni, from various programmes to visit and network with seven of the top financial institutions in London. Taking part in 2020 were:
- Morgan Stanley
- Arma Partners
- Credit Suisse
- PJT Partners
- Park Square Capital
The event was declared a success by both students and institutions, even despite the pared-back format required for 2020. The ESCP Finance Society would like to thank all those who took part, and to wish students all the best with their applications in the future.
