"As the International Finance Graduate Program Manager, I aim to push graduates to the edge of their comfort zones where they develop as individuals and deliver value to the organization during their rotations while growing as a group outside the rotations.

Throughout the program, your personal and professional development will be supported on a day-to-day basis by the department manager and continuously by me as manager of the program."
