Maria Serova

  • Study: BSc Biochemistry - Oxford
  • Project: How AI is changing the supply chain
As someone from a non-finance background, I found the programme to be extremely valuable and a learning experience. I enjoyed the balance between guidance and freedom that we had on our projects, the impact that our work could have and presenting our findings to senior executives. The training was top-notch and we learned a lot. Despite being interns, we were given access to those in senior management who were happy to answer any of our questions.
Nick Zylstra
  • Year: 2019
  • Office: Sydney
  • Study: BSc Economics and Entrepreneurialism – University of Virginia
  • Project: Consumer views on Australian banking
My time at Pepper exceeded all my expectations. The interest the executives took in the programme made us feel valued, and encouraged me to continue working hard every day. The scope of the projects was an exciting challenge, forcing us to collaborate not only with our dedicated partners, but with the entire team of interns across the world. While this had its own set of hurdles, working in this environment taught me a great deal about the world of finance, and about how to be an active member of a global team. My time with Pepper was an incredible experience, and I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity.
Rachel Vakil
  • Year: 2021
  • Office: Sydney
  • Study: BSc Commerce and Economics – University of New South Wales
  • Project: Investment analysis of South East Asia
The Summer Global Internship Programme at Pepper was such an amazing experience. Working on projects at the forefront of Pepper’s strategies meant my work made a valuable contribution to the business and fueled my motivation to work hard, as I felt an integral part of the Pepper team. Pepper ensured that my learning remained a key priority for them, as they invested in my development with constant guidance from the senior executives. The challenging global environment enabled me to expand my financial knowledge and development. I was encouraged by the greater responsibility to drive our own projects.
