Corporate Development programs out of undergrad

Hi all,

As said in the title, I am interested to recruit for corpdev (M&A /strategy) jobs out of undergrad specifically. I realized IB isn't for me after interning at a MM bank. Is there a list of programs I could find or could anyone recommend all the companies that have such programs?

 

Thank you.

Hey smggrook01, I'm the WSO Monkey Bot and I am sad to say, but this thread is lonely, so thought I'd post in here to try and help out. Some potential topics that might help:

If those topics were completely useless, don't blame me, blame my programmers...

Go on linkedin and search "corp dev" entry level jobs.  Most jobs do not have specific recruiting timelines you just have to apply online, reach out to contacts, and see what happens.
