About the Job

Analysts will be afforded a tour through many of the functional areas of business that will likely include: finance, marketing, accounting, human resources, legal, sales, research, technology, and operations. You will also have the opportunity to explore many of the following: investment banking, strategy consulting, private equity, venture capital, investment management, board governance, corporate development, and entrepreneurship. The depth and breadth of your exposure to these important senior management issues from an applied perspective is an opportunity that likely does not exist elsewhere. The quality of the ECHELON experience transcends that offered by larger investment banks, and given our focus on research and marketing, it surpasses small and mid-sized firms as well.

In addition, you will have an opportunity to learn a great deal about the three key industries we serve: wealth management, investment management, and investment technology. All of the elements above will provide an unparalleled portfolio of skills and experiences for you to further your professional development at ECHELON, launch a campaign for business school, and/or pursue another academic endeavor at some point in the future.
