Colleagues working in an innovative environment

Providing Practical Experience

Open only to those who have completed our Summer Analyst Program, the Emerging Leaders Program is a one-year rotational analyst development program providing participants an opportunity to complete three, four-month rotation assignments within an identified line of business/functional area.

Program Highlights

The ELP allows participants to develop leadership skills, build networks across the organization and accelerate their careers, while providing a deep understanding of a targeted business or function through a mix of targeted in-classroom learning that cultivates business acumen and leadership skills along with on-the-job business rotational assignments and a strategic business challenge. The program consists of:

  • Small, selective program size that allows for more personal attention and support.
  • Vibrant onboarding and training curriculum designed specifically for ELP analysts.
  • Visibility and exposure to senior leaders and executive management one-on-one and in small cohorts.
  • Full commitment from top-level management to make our program the premier talent pipeline program within the financial services industry.

For additional questions about the program, please contact your Program Manager.
