Exploratory Summits 

At BNP Paribas, we belong to a forward-thinking group where our diversity, equity & inclusion initiatives take center stage and where new ideas and fresh perspectives foster and nurture innovation.

As a sophomore-level student, you have the opportunity to expand your potential with the BNP Paribas Exploratory Summits. The Summits offer two days of interactive, and virtual programming crafted to immerse students into the culture and core Banking, Markets and Corporate Function businesses of BNP Paribas. 

Each Summit will create dynamic conversations exploring the importance of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and the ways in which it is an essential part of the cultural fabric of BNP Paribas.

The Summits will help you find success through:

  • Fireside chats and panels hosted by current Analysts and former Interns, senior leaders and the BNP Paribas Employee Resource Groups (BOLD, HOLA, Pride, and more) 
  • Open conversations and small group sessions hosted by business leaders and team members who will share their professional experiences and how they support BNP Paribas’s mission and values
  • Skills-building activities to strengthen your resume and expand your professional knowledge and skillsets
  • Dedicated recruiting office hours with our Campus Recruiting team and hiring managers accessible for your questions
  • Networking 

 Following the virtual programing, participants may be invited to interview for the 2024 summer analyst internship.
