AFREXIMBANK Internship Program for African Students 2023/2024. Applications for the AFREXIMBANK Internship Program are now open. Interested persons should see how to apply below and the requirements.
The Bank recognizes that as part of its mandate to promote and finance trade in Africa, it needs to facilitate a broader understanding of the problems of African trade and trade finance as well as the principles of trade finance, and especially structured trade finance, which is its operating model.
By offering good students a chance for an internship with the Bank, it is expected that they will leave with a better knowledge of the Bank’s mandate and operating model, which they will put to use as they develop their careers, no doubt with direct benefits to the Bank and generally, to trade in Africa. It is also expected that the interns will also contribute fresh and diverse ideas to the operations of the Bank. The internships are offered for up to a maximum of six months twice a year (June and December). Applications for internship are received throughout the year.
