About the Internship Placement

It is also expected that the interns will also contribute fresh and diverse ideas to the operations of the Bank. The Internship is open to students who are nationals of the Bank’s member countries a list of which is available on the Bank’s website. The programme attracts a lot of highly qualified candidates.
