Fortune 500 M&APE
Hey guys, just wanted to know what some other people would think of this opportunity.
I might have an opportunity to work directly with a VP of a Fortune 500 firm in Massachusetts in their M&A department. This company made over a dozen acquisitions of small and midsized firms last year, and plan to make similar strides this year. I'd be doing a lot of research into potential acquisition candidates, as well as some valuation and also due diligence.
I guess what I'm asking is whether or not this is a worthwhile internship. Obviously it's not the same as getting one with a BB, but this is a Fortune 500 company and I'd be learning about a lot M&A stuff that you will learn with a BB. Is this comparable/better/worse than getting an internship with a boutique?
FWIW, I'm currently a junior at a relatively small liberal arts school in New England. I've got a high GPA (3.8+) but am lacking on some of the extracurriculars, as well as experience in i-banking. Working from the corporate side is not i-banking, but it deals with a lot of the same stuff, so that's what's got me interested in it.
Any info/insight/suggestions appreciated.
