    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    It started with a standard application for Summer 2013. I was then invited to take a Phone interview with HR then an Assessment Centre.

    The phone call was bog standard competencies as well as some UBS based questions.

    The AC had a presentation based on information, a group assessment & an interview. The process was really friendly and the questions certainly weren't too taxing. It's a shame I messed up the group exercise by not inputting.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at UBS.

    Interview Details

    Applied through program with the help of connections, and as a result was a pretty easy process. Most applicants tend to be entering their junior year so the questions tend to not be too technical. This is a very good program though that is helpful to anyone who wants to get introduced to the both the financial world and, obviously, mainly the wealth management world.
