BIE Week

The week-long Bank Interdisciplinary Experience (BIE) capstone project gives students an opportunity to use their learned skills on real Bank issues with a team of other interns. Interns will get to use knowledge gained during the summer from both workshops and on-the-job experiences. Intern teams present the project solution at the end of the week to a panel of judges composed of Bank leaders. Judges evaluate each presentation based upon a consistent rubric. The winning team is announced at the BIE Week reception and awards ceremony.
