The Rotational Program

Wintrust’s rotational credit analyst training program, Wintrust Credit Academy, offers the opportunity to build a career in commercial banking. Over the course of the two-year program, individuals will gain exposure to a variety of functions in the commercial banking field through classroom training and rotational job assignments.

Credit analysts are responsible for financial analysis and risk assessment of potential borrowers, preparation of credit memoranda to be presented to senior management, and monitoring credit risk within various loan portfolios. The rotational component of the program includes terms in areas such as commercial and industrial, commercial real estate, wealth services, asset-based lending, and treasury management. Analysts will be side by side with commercial lenders and credit professionals and will receive on-the-job training working on actual loan proposals for Wintrust commercial banking clients.

Through in-classroom training, analysts will also learn about the organization, our solutions and services, clients, and business practices. During this portion of the program, individuals will be introduced to the fundamentals of credit analysis, our underwriting framework, and various other subjects including loan documentation, risk assessment and concise financial writing.

After successful completion of the program, highly motivated analysts will have the opportunity to move into a professional role in commercial banking or credit at one of the many Wintrust locations. Wintrust Credit Academy provides a solid foundation for developing a successful career as a commercial banker.
