Graduate Intern Joost Pluim describes our working atmosphere as follows:
“Doing my (thesis) internship at Deloitte (FRM) brings a great opportunity of getting a taste of what working at Deloitte is about. I’m researching extreme yield curves by training a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) in generating yield curves as good as possible without actually showing training data. This makes it possible to learn the underlying characteristics of what a yield curve is, instead of learning the training data! Having two supervisors guiding me through the financial world as well as the challenges in computer science, makes great achievements possible. Getting great support at my project by experienced consultants and managers, mixed with the opportunity of joining all kinds of trainings and the possibility of relaxing your brain a bit by playing a game of table football, makes it an awesome experience to do my internship at Deloitte!”
