During this 10-week program, Summer Analysts are placed directly into one of the following sector teams: Consumer, Energy, Utilities, Financials, Healthcare, Industrials, Materials, Media, Telecommunication or Technology. The placements are made based on the needs of the department and the skill set and preferences of the candidate.
The Summer Analyst Program begins with a training and development curriculum that covers the fundamental and professional skills you need for success in Equity Research. After a brief training period, Summer Analysts will be assigned to a specific industry group, building a strong foundation in the basic skills of fundamental analysis, accounting and valuation. There will be networking opportunities and ongoing training throughout the program.
Equity Research is the best place to start a career in finance, in my view. You learn the hard skills of analyzing financial statements and building models, along with soft skills like developing a thesis and communicating it to the smart clients you interact with every day.
