Join Our Team

Investment Banking Summer Analyst Program

Annually, our New York, San Francisco and Houston Investment Banking offices have opportunities for about twenty college juniors as summer analysts. The positions are in the Health Care, Technology, Information & Technology Services, Consumer, Energy, Industrials, Special Situations, and Financial Sponsors corporate finance groups as well as in the M&A, Equity, and Capital Markets product groups.

The firm values individuals who are demonstrated team players and can interact with all levels of the organization.  Successful candidates will exhibit a common sense approach to problem solving and a strong desire to learn, in addition to showing initiative, integrity, and creativity.

All of our summer hires spend ten weeks with us, starting in early June with a week long training program in New York.  Weekly lunches with senior leaders throughout Cowen, a successful mentor program, and day-to-day opportunities to do “real” work and contribute to the teams’ successes distinguish our program from those at other firms.


Fall 2018 Update (as of October 15, 2018) –  Cowen has completed hiring for the 2019 Investment Banking Summer Analyst Class.  We are no longer accepting applications.  The recruiting team is currently in the process of contacting all applicants to provide updates on the final status of their applications.
