Amerant Bank Partners With Miami Dade College to Provide Student Growth and Career Development Programs

Amerant Bank recently partnered with Miami Dade College (MDC) to enhance the school’s internship program by offering students professional experiences and future full-time opportunities. The partnership will enable local college students to grow and gain work experience to excel in their careers.

“Miami Dade College plays a vital role in educating our college students in South Florida, and through our new partnership, we are able to help further enrich students’ lives by helping them grow in their career paths,” Jerry Plush says, Chairman and CEO of Amerant Bank. “We will be proud to see many of these students ultimately become permanent members of our growing team.”

To expand upon MDC’s Immersive Internship Program and Personal Banking Apprenticeship program, Amerant Bank will host five interns and five apprentices from MDC that meet specific criteria. The partnership involves Amerant’s IMPACT initiative, which was recently rebranded to encompass the bank’s efforts related to its impact on environmental, social and governance matters. One of the initiative’s goals entails helping cultivate local students seeking careers in various industries to gain real-life and tangible work experiences.

“We are thrilled to partner with Amerant Bank to create new internship opportunities for our students,” Madeline Pumariega says, president of MDC. “Amerant’s programs will help our students gain essential hands-on experience while providing the skills they need to succeed. We look forward to working with Amerant Bank to continue our mission of training the future workforce.”

Amerant’s latest internship offerings include:

The Immersive Internship Program involves a partnership with MDC’s School of Engineering, Technology, and Design program. This one-year program will allow students to obtain real work experience in data analytics while completing their senior year. Interns in this program are considered full-time team members and will have access to the same benefits as full-time staff. Program students will work alongside the bank’s Chief Digital Officer to implement bank-wide digital solutions. Upon completion, students will have the opportunity to transfer to a full-time position at the bank.

The Personal Banking Apprenticeship Program will have apprentices working alongside relationship and market managers in Amerant’s banking centers. Apprentices will gain the skills needed to become banking specialists. Those who complete this program will be considered to have ample experience in their field amongst peers and will have the opportunity to transfer to a full-time position at the bank.
