"The ACT Program offered me invaluable opportunities to network and explore my interests in banking. The program fosters a supportive environment for me to learn and grow alongside bright and highly motivated peers. The comprehensive credit training and rotations provided in the program are the biggest advantages, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to experience in the early stages of my career."
Amanda Wong
2021 ACT Associate

"Initially, the ACT program offered me a great transition from the University classroom to the workforce with instructor-led credit analysis training and live group case studies. The classroom-like environment helped me build a great foundation of skills that prepared me well for the work rotational aspect of the program. During rotations, I gained real-world experience working in many different departments of the Bank, allowing me to further explore various career paths. To this day, I continue to rely on the network of connections I gained throughout the program to effectively collaborate with peers across the Bank."

I chose BOK Financial because of their longstanding reputation in the community, opportunities for growth, and the amazing culture. I stay because I found all those things and more. My favorite thing about the ACT program is witnessing Associates and Interns having “ah ha” moments. The bank truly supports the program and sees the tenor of the employees who go through it. When I hear the feedback individuals provide about the program, it validates that I know we are doing things right. BOKF is truly one of a kind.
