My Internship Experience at Proshare - First Class Graduate of Law

I first heard of Proshare in my third year as an undergraduate at Babcock University, where I was studying law. I was at my wits end regarding a term paper which not only dealt with a challenging subject matter, but also involved me working as a team leader; coordinating, giving deadlines, conducting primary research. In the course of this, I came across an article relating to my work which the company had published on its website. Succinct yet thorough and detailed; I was delighted. Hence, I also was equally delighted when it was recommended to me after my graduation while I was seeking to intern in a company where I could learn, be challenged, and stretch myself to the broadest intellectual limits possible. I am more than glad to say that after four months of this internship experience, Proshare did not fall short of these great expectations.


I resumed on a cold Monday morning in December 2020 after I had just finished my grueling professional examinations, filled equally with dread, excitement, and even a degree of admiration for the very impressive interior, a brilliant splash of bright oranges, grays, and white.

I was warmly introduced to everyone and given a comfortable seat to work- which I started immediately, I must say. While an intern, I was accommodated by every single person who offered help in some way or the other. My contributions were always regarded as valid and important, and I was corrected whenever there was a need for such. I had the opportunity to work with and learn from a brilliant team of analysts who are excellent at what they do, and I daresay that I have never learnt so much about economics and finance anywhere else. Working at Proshare deepened my curiosity about the way things work in the world of economics, and my insight grew with each Analyst Call session we had.

With the Research team


I had the privilege of contributing to well-written reports on various subjects affecting the Nigerian economy, and under the close supervision of bulwarks of knowledge such as Mr. Saheed Kiaribe, Director of Research and Mr. Teslim Shitta-Bey, Chief Economist/Managing Editor, delivered results which I would have previously thought myself incapable of.

Today, I am proud to say that I am a more curious, intelligent, and exposed person as a result of working at Proshare for four months. More importantly, I am proud to say that I am part of the Proshare family and I am greatly beholden to it for all that I have been given.
