What kind of internship experience is needed for a Masters in finance?

Hey, I intend to do a Masters in Finance or Financial Economics from a top grad school in the USA hopefully, right after my undergrad. I've got solid academic + leadership credentials. But from a work experience pov, I've gotten the chance to work on the research side of a large asset management company. Would this kind of experience strengthen my profile for the grad school program I'm interested in? If not, what else would you suggest?

Much thanks for your advice
