UBS logo
UBS draws on its 150-year heritage to serve private, institutional and corporate clients worldwide, as well as retail clients in Switzerland. We combine our wealth management, investment banking and asset management businesses with our Swiss operations to deliver superior financial solutions.

UBS recruits graduates from all academic backgrounds � the humanities and sciences, as well as economics and finance. Because of its global reach, the firm is particularly keen to hear from students with strong language skills. For UBS, degree subject is less important than a graduate�s ability to prove they can analyze problems, plan ahead, make decisions, demonstrate sound judgement, and communicate with others. The other qualities UBS seeks in graduates are ambition, integrity, a commitment to accuracy, and a desire to work as part of a friendly but driven team.
