About Bank of New York Mellon Corporation Summer Associate Program

Created by the $17.6 billion merger of Mellon Financial Corporation and The Bank of New York Company in July 2007, The Bank of New York Mellon is a securities services and asset management company with more than 48,000 employees operating across 36 countries. Headquartered in NYC, BNY Mellon's clients include asset managers, banks, broker-dealers, corporations, governments, high-net-worth individuals, insurance companies, non-profits, and pension funds. 

The firm's Summer Associate Program is designed to give participants an inside look into what it's like to work for a competitive, global financial services organization. With projects specifically chosen to both challenge and provide growth opportunities, summer associates gain valuable real-world experience working in different functional areas, which could include Business Partner Groups (Audit, Finance, Human Resources, Risk & Compliance),  Investment Management (Asset Management, Wealth Management) and Investment Services (Client Service Delivery, Business Service Delivery, Relationship Management). 

Each summer associate is assigned a meaningful project that challenges him/her to grow professionally throughout the summer. Interns will receive feedback and instruction from a direct manager and will be assigned a formal mentor who will help to further integrate him/her into the organization. Associates receive high-level exposure by having the opportunity to network and interact with senior leaders and executive management.

Interns will also learn to work together as a collaborative team and will participate in robust, structured programming focused on BNY Mellon’s company culture, professional development, community outreach, networking, mentoring and more.

Upon successful completion of their summer program, exceptional summer associates are considered first for the next opportunity to grow with BNY Mellon.  By applying, rising juniors have the potential to be considered for the subsequent Summer Associate Program and rising seniors may be evaluated for the opportunity to advance into one of BNY Mellon’s exclusive full-time post-graduate programs.



In order to apply for the Summer Associate Program, applicants must:

  • be enrolled in a 4-year undergraduate (U.S.) or full-time undergraduate degree (UK) program

  • have a class status of rising junior or senior in the US; 2 years left of study or penultimate year students in the UK
