Harris Associates

Harris Associates is one of the most successful value investment firms in the world. For 46 years, we have applied a fundamentally focused, research-driven investment process to identify undervalued companies in the public market. We view every investment we make as ownership in a business and take a long-term approach in our portfolios. We are proud of the performance results we’ve achieved for our clients and as of September 2023, we manage $95 billion of assets across U.S. and international strategies.


Harris Associates’ performance is a result of our unique culture and approach to investing. Instead of dividing our team into sectors, our analysts are all generalists, researching companies across a wide range of industries and cap sizes. This strategy lends itself to a highly collaborative environment, and our team works together daily to vet investment ideas and ensure we make the best possible decisions.


Summer Internship

The Harris Associates Buy-side Investment Research Internship is designed to identify and train the next generation of analysts, portfolio managers, and leaders at Harris Associates. We have a long history of developing interns into full-time members of our research team. In fact, 33% of our current research group were once interns themselves. 

Interns at Harris can expect to collaborate with analysts to help generate new investment ideas and follow existing portfolio companies. This will entail doing qualitative research projects, building financial models, and learning about businesses. 


We are looking for smart, ambitious, and thoughtful individuals to bring their unique perspective to Harris Associates. The best interns are voracious learners and are constantly asking questions about the world around them. Importantly, this does not require a background in finance or economics – just intellectual horsepower and a genuine interest in learning what makes businesses succeed or fail. 


We don’t believe in classroom-style training programs. As an intern at Harris, you will be mentored directly by our analysts and will progress at a pace that makes sense for you. For some, this may mean more time dedicated to the fundamentals of business valuation, whereas others may focus on qualitative business insights and new idea generation. Through this personalized learning, our goal is to develop interns into thoughtful, contributing members of our team. All majors and ages are welcome to apply. 


Equal Employment Opportunity Policy Statement:

At Harris Associates L.P. we are committed to providing an inclusive environment of mutual respect and fairness where equal employment opportunities are available to all qualified applicants and employees. We base our employment decisions on merit, experience, potential, and business need.  We are proud to be an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer.
