The Analyst Program provides undergraduate students an opportunity to master the analytical, quantitative and interpersonal skills necessary to develop an exciting and rewarding career on Wall Street. Analysts joining Public Finance will participate in a six-week intensive Training Program in both Public Finance and Sales & Trading in New York. Analysts are then placed directly with a group in Public Finance where opportunities exist in one of the following product areas: Infrastructure (States, Cities and Local Governments), Higher Education and Not-for-Profit Institutions, Healthcare, Affordable Housing, Public Power and Utilities and Syndicate.
All new Analysts participate in an intensive Firmwide orientation program, which covers the Firm's businesses, the transition from an academic setting to a corporate environment and opportunities for establishing a network throughout the Firm, globally. The Analysts then attend divisional training where they learn the core skills required to be successful on the job. The curriculum includes daily market updates, accounting courses, credit risk analysis, business overview speaker sessions, product and technical training and registration preparation. In addition, Public Finance Analysts receive training in municipal finance, tax-exempt municipal bond math, credit derivatives, options and yield curve fundamentals. Analysts have several opportunities to network with peers, mentors and managers through team-building sessions, learning lunches, community service, social events and more.
