Investment Banking Summer Analyst Program
The 9-week summer analyst program begins with a weeklong classroom training that teaches the fundamentals of banking, with a specific focus on modeling and relevant analytical techniques. Learning and development takes place throughout the summer through apprenticeship, structured learning sessions from group leaders, and formal on-going performance feedback.
Summer analysts will become integral members of the Investment Banking Group, joining small transaction teams, which provide financial advisory services to the firm’s clients. Day-to-day responsibilities include financial analysis and modeling, company and industry research, participating in the development of client presentations, and interacting with senior bankers and clients. The internship is a generalist program through which summer analysts receive exposure to all M&A coverage groups as well as the Restructuring group.
