Hello everyone! I will be a freshman this upcoming year and am very interested in going into investment banking. I've learned financial modeling and DCF valuation through online courses, but am eager to get some real experience.
Despite hearing that the junior summer internship is the most important internship for potential investment bankers, I would like to get more exposure to the field, specifically through an internship after my freshman summer (summer of 2020).
I will be an applied math major, but I have formal research experience (healthcare economics at a top university) and am currently an intern at a clinical research organization. As an intern this summer, I spend the majority of my time programming in R (statistical computing programming language) and creating models in Excel.
Could anyone recommend potential ways to go about securing a freshman summer internship in investment banking, as well as firms to target? Additionally, if you have any advice for an incoming undergraduate interested in investment banking, please feel free to PM me. Thank you!
