Apply REF: COR190701





BNP Paribas Advisory Benelux is part of the global BNP Paribas Fortis  group.

The BNP Paribas Advisory team comprises more than 400 seasoned Investment Bankers located around the world. We help corporate, institutional and government clients solve their most critical financial challenges. Whether it is to grow, innovate, refinance, acquire or sell their company, our bankers focus on helping our clients with their most important strategic decisions and transactions.

Joining BNP Paribas Advisory Benelux, you will be part of both the largest and leading Belgian team focusing almost exclusively on Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) advisory.

You will also be part of the BNP Paribas CIB group, a worldwide leading global financial services division. BNP Paribas CIB is part of BNP Paribas Group, the largest bank in the Eurozone, active in 72 countries with nearly 200,000 employees and 164 nationalities to offer unmatched development opportunities for talent.


We employ high achievers, dedicated to making an impact in a changing world and ready to ride the steepest learning curve.

We are looking for fast learners and hard workers who can demonstrate the following traits:

  • Excellence in both academic and extra-academic activities

  • Deep interest in Investment Banking, economics, and finance in general

  • Outstanding analytical and communication skills
  • Energy, attention to detail, commitment and enthusiasm
  • Fluency in English, as well as in Dutch and/or French

While it is not an absolute requirement, we value prior internship experience in Investment Banking or any adjacent field (e.g. consulting, transaction services).


You recently graduated from a university or business school, preferably with a focus on finance, and you want to join the leading Investment Banking team in Belgium for an internship of minimum six months.

Our internships provide you with the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, from acquisitions and sale auctions through to IPOs, across various industries, within Benelux but also including numerous cross-border situations. We work in close collaboration with a number of teams across the Group.

As an intern, you will help us deliver value to our clients on their most important strategic decisions and transactions, from beginning to closing. This entails company and sectorial research, preparation of key documents, financial modelling, and much more. As you gain experience, you will gain increased responsibilities, including hands-on work on live transactions, with the steepest learning curve a young graduate can expect.

In addition to being a valuable experience and a prestigious mark on your resume, an internship is the best way for you and for us to test your motivation and mind-set for the unique Investment Banking world. Successful internships can open the door to full time job offers.

The position is based in Brussels on the BNPP Paribas Fortis premises.


After careful review of your application, you might be invited to a first round of interviews and, if successful, a second and final round, potentially resulting in an offer to join us for an internship.

First round

During the first round, you will typically meet 2 to 3 bankers (Analysts, Associates or Vice-Presidents) for one-to-one interviews.

In these interviews, we will assess whether you would be a good addition to our team by discussing the two following topics:

  • Experience interview: geared towards your motivation to join our team, your past achievements and your aspirations

  • Technical interview: focused on your business sense, understanding of general financial and accounting concepts and approach to solving problems. This could take the form of a business case

We aim to provide you with feedback as soon as possible regarding the outcome of your first round.

Final round

The final round consists of 2 to 3 interviews with senior bankers (Directors or Managing Directors). The content of the interviews will be similar to the first round, with increased focus on soft skills.


Choose BNP Paribas Fortis and apply here.

A first screening will be done, based on your resume and your cover letter.  Are we convinced that you are the right candidate?  If so, we will contact you.  Good luck!


The start date for this position is situated in the fall of 2020.
