The mission of Beacon Pointe University (BPU) is to become the premier educator in the local Orange County community on areas of personal finance and investments. Through an educational course and a comprehensive summer internship program, Beacon Pointe is committed to the financial well-being of “friends and family” of the firm and aims to assist them in being better stewards of their individual and family finances.
Purpose and Objective:
The Beacon Pointe Summer Internship Program is designed to educate younger generations on the complexities of the world of finance – how the investment banking, portfolio management and wealth advisory realms work together – and expose students to career opportunities within the wealth management and Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) industry.
Today, wealth management and financial planning careers do not receive the same exposure on university campuses in comparison to those of investment banking and other finance related careers. Beacon Pointe’s internship program is designed to educate, engage and empower our intern class to see, first-hand, the value of services provided to our clients, the financial success and opportunities associated with a career in wealth management, and the enjoyment and fulfillment Beacon Pointe employees gain from having a career in this particular industry.
The Beacon Pointe Summer Internship Program is located at Beacon Pointe Headquarters in Newport Beach, CA and is open to Sophomore, Junior and Senior college-level students only.
We are currently taking applications for our 2018 Summer Internship Program. The 2017 Program is full and closed.
