Program Description:
Blackstone's Summer Analyst Program is 10-weeks in length and will provide participants broad exposure to the Firm. The Program offers Summer Analyst's various technical and soft skill training opportunities, the ability to network with professionals across all business units, and a chance to fully immerse themselves in the Blackstone culture.                         

Job Description:
Blackstone’s private equity group offers Summer Analysts the chance to engage in the acquisition of companies across a variety of sectors and transaction structures. The investment process develops both the financial analysis toolkit of investment banking and the strategic thinking mindset of management consulting, resulting in a unique opportunity to develop a well-rounded and comprehensive skill set in business.
Summer Analysts at Blackstone are given similar responsibilities as a full-time Analyst, with the opportunity to participate in all aspects of a given project and be staffed on several assignments at once. Due to the relatively small size of the overall PE investment team, Summer Analysts can assume integral roles within their deal teams and get experience working directly with senior professionals. Summer Analysts are involved with the diligence, evaluation, structuring, and financing of transactions and regularly attend investment committee meetings, management sessions, and negotiations.
