We are seeking candidates who are not only passionate about the work but also possess an entrepreneurial spirit, a team-player mindset, and strong communication skills. This internship is an opportunity to engage in continual learning, meet deadlines, and demonstrate a keen interest in international affairs and economics through previous coursework or relevant experience.

  • Proficiency in MS Office suite, especially Excel.
  • An interest in geoeconomics, international trade, fiscal & monetary policy, sanctions, Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), and the future of the global economic landscape.
