Corporate M&A Analyst - Responsibilities and Exit Ops
Hi all - I've been selectively searching for corp dev roles over the past few months and continue to come across certain positions titled as "Corporate M&A Analyst". After doing some research, I haven't been able locate much background info on these types of roles.
I've found these types of positions sometimes sit within a company's corp dev team (also depending on if the company has a dedicated team) and typically report directly to the DoF and CFO. From talking to a few recruiters, the job seems to be mostly focused on the deal close process, with potentially a bit of strategy and sourcing mixed in as well. A couple of these positions were newly created roles given the companies are presumably gearing up to make multiple acquisitions.
A bit of background on myself, I have two years of B4 Transaction Service experience following a short stint in audit coming out of college. Wish I wasn't lazy in college and had started mapping out my career at a earlier age but alas here we are. Also potentially relevant: I have a solid GMAT score in my back pocket so b-school is something I'm going to look at in another year or two. Long term goal would probably be a Corp Dev or Corp Strategy role within a F500 Tech company.
Was wondering if anyone on here had any further knowledge on these types of positions? (Comp, promo path, responsibilities, exit ops, ect.) Any guidance/insight would be much appreciated.
