What Our Members Say

Learn how ModernGuild has impacted the lives of our graduates.

"Although I received a finance education through many of my college classes, my career coach gave me the confidence that I needed to succeed in the interview process. Aside from clarifying technical questions, she was a huge support system, and for that I am unceasingly appreciative!"

Shruti Kumar
NYU

"The MG Accelerator boosted my technical skills and strengthened my ability to communicate ideas clearly -- it definitely gave me an huge advantage during the recruiting process and helped me get my job at Citi."

Jennifer Zhang
University of Michigan

"The accelerator gives you an insight into real world practices in finance and lets you apply concepts you learn in the class and the four week program through tailored assignments. The one-on-one conversations with my mentor was the most valuable aspect of it, since I got real time feedback and the opportunity to ask questions right away."

By participating, am I obligated to accept a job offer?

Nope, you are not obligated to accept an internship of job offer. However, given the demand for any given Accelerator, we do hope that you will only enroll if you have a sincere interest in working for the sponsoring company. In order to keep things fair, we also ask that all enrolled students abstain from accepting any other job offers until 1 month after the program's completion when interviews are complete.

Who is eligible to apply?

Who is eligible to apply?

Eligibility for our Accelerators depends on the demands of our company partners for each given cycle. For the Spring of 2017, we will be focusing heavily on college freshmen/sophomores and students of diverse backgrounds (e.g. women, underrepresented minorities, veterans, LGBTQ). However, we always make sure to keep seats available for wildcards and invite any motivated college student to apply.
