Markets – Summer Analyst Program

Cowen’s Markets Summer Analyst Program provides exposure to senior experienced professionals through on-the-job training and department rotations including Institutional Research Sales, Sales Trading, Trading, Electronic Trading and Options and Event Strategies. This is an eight-week program running from 6/13/2022 to 8/12/2022.

Mentorship and Networking

The program will include mentoring and networking opportunities as well as leader presentations and a lunch and learn series designed to familiarize participants with the workings of our Investment Banking, Equity Research, and Investment Management divisions. 

Hands-on Experience

This is an opportunity to experience Cowen’s unique culture, work on a fast-paced trading floor, attend client meetings, and build fundamental skills. You will be working with analysts across the floor to understand different aspects of Sales and Trading, ultimately leading to a final stock pitch presentation designed to showcase critical thinking skills and increase professional presence.

Training

Your internship will begin with a five-day Wall Street Prep training program designed to teach you the basics and jargon of the Markets world. On the final day of this training program, there will be a trading simulation to put your skills to practice.
