IIX Apprenticeship Program
Applications for the 2019 Summer Program is now closed. You are welcome to apply for apprenticeships from August to Dec 2019 for the fall intake.
About the IIX Apprenticeship Program:
As an apprentice, you will learn about our businesses, develop important relationships, and build career-enhancing skills. While your discipline or major is not important, we’re looking for students with an outstanding record of academic achievement and an interest in changing the world by changing the financial markets.
A financial background is not necessary. Your area or major of concentration is less important to us than your potential. Whether you’ve distinguished yourself in economics or history, the next phase of your career will be shaped by your passion, energy and vision. We encourage you to apply, provided you share an interest in connecting the back streets with wall streets, and have demonstrated strong academic performance and professional drive.
- The Experience
We provide our apprentices with the tools necessary for professional growth and career advancement. As a new apprentice, you will learn a great deal about the firm and how we do business and about the whole sector. You will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to support our businesses.
All apprenticeships are based in the Singapore headquarters.
An apprenticeship at IIX can open the doors for you to join the IIX team full time if you perform exceptionally well. Some of our full time staff have gone on to study at top Business Schools for their post graduate studies, for example at Yale, Georgetown, INSEAD, Columbia SIPA among others.
Interested candidates can submit their application at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note all accepted Apprentices will be working across teams as needed.
- Eligibility: Students who have completed their 3rd year of Bachelor’s degree (rising seniors) and MBA/Master’s/ Ph.D students are welcome to apply

You may highlight in your application which core team you prefer to work with. However the final decision to assign the team will be based on our assessment of your application.
What Do Our Past Summer Apprentices Say About Us?
“I felt everyone was very open and approachable whenever I had any questions. I had a great supervisor and working with them on the IIX Growth Fund was an amazing learning experience which gave me a lot of exposure to funds and how they work.”
“The most significant learning for me in the apprenticeship was importance of measuring impact and how to use SROI as a guide to do so, also learning about the gaps in the social enterprise ecosystem that IIX aim to fill through impact credit. This apprenticeship was excellent, very well structured and designed to maximize the learning experience of apprentices.”
“Working with the impact assessment team has been a great learning curve for me and it has opened my eyes to the challenges that impact enterprises face and the hopes, faith and value the impact community and the teams of IIX have for the future. Working with Durreen has been inspirational and her life journey has taught me the most important lesson: If you believe in something, you have to fight for it.”
“I had a very fruitful apprenticeship with IIX and the corporate finance team. The internal workshops like financial modelling and impact assessment broadened my knowledge base and honed my business analysis skills. I also gained valuable insights about impact investing space which culminates in tangible results. My supervisor and team members were very supportive and I highly recommend this apprenticeship to all students.”
