Description: Pioneer Investments International's (PII) internships are carefully framed around research into developing and frontier markets in Africa and the Middle East. Not only will this allow an intern to help make sense of the complex political, economic and security environments of areas where PII hopes to invest, but will also provide opportunities for regular performance evaluations and feedback. Both of which are needed to develop the skills for future workplace performance.

Participating in a PII internship is a fantastic way to discover how private equity functions, as well as sharpening the expertise needed to assess and analyze some of the most challenging global issues currently at work in the world today.
