Campus Undergraduate – 2021 Discovery Program

Job Description

Campus Undergraduate – Discovery Program


Since 1850, American Express has worked to make a difference in our customers' lives in ways that matter most to them. We began as a freight forwarding company in 1850, earning a reputation as a company people could trust while transporting some of their most valuable possessions. In the late 19th century and early 20th century, we introduced new financial products and travel services that helped support our customers’ everyday lives. In the 1950s, we introduced a charge card, offering customers a new and convenient way to pay. Ever since, we’ve innovated our card products, our services and our other offerings. Today, American Express is the largest global payments network and we continue to pride ourselves on being forward-looking and customer-focused.


With each new development, one thing has remained constant: our commitment to our customers and our special brand of service. 


About the American Express Discovery Program:

The American Express Discovery Program (ADP) is a two-day program hosted virtually providing students the opportunity to learn more about American Express. Students will experience our culture firsthand, learn more about AXP history, gain a comprehensive understanding of our unique business units and build a network with AXP colleagues. The ADP Program will provide participants with an accelerated interview process for Summer 2021 internship positions in the function of your choice. This program helps align with our commitment to make sure our colleagues are as diverse as our customers and the communities we serve by focusing on attracting promising students from groups underrepresented in the financial industry.

Creating a diverse team is a critical part of our success. We are looking for students with a strong-work ethic, intellectual curiosity, ability to build relationships, and an interest in the financial services industry.
