Welcome aboard the SMBC Aviation Capital Graduate Programme. Every year, we select a small number of high-flying graduates looking for opportunities in the fast-paced, global and dynamic business of aircraft leasing.
Applications are open to postgraduate and final-year undergraduate students. Your particular academic focus is not important, but it would help to have an interest in financial markets and to share our enthusiasm for aviation.
