UBS logo
UBS is a global financial services firm that serves 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 our global reach, we are 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 analyse 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.
