Lincoln International Overview:

We are trusted investment banking advisors to business owners and senior executives of leading private equity firms and public and privately held companies around the world. Our advisory services include mergers and acquisitions, debt advisory, growth equity and restructuring for the mid-market.

Lincoln International’s Associate Internship:
  Summer Associate Roles typically join the M&A practice. Summer Associates generally work in the firm’s Chicago, New York or Los Angeles office while interacting with a global team.

The Summer Associate position at Lincoln International involves interacting closely with the firm’s senior bankers and clients’ senior executives.  Associates are heavily involved in every aspect of an M&A transaction and ultimately, master the ability to execute a deal from start-to-finish.

Given a global platform, Summer Associates also receive a high level of exposure to international clients and buyers, thus further enhancing their experience.

Lincoln International continuously provides Summer Associates with opportunities beyond typical roles in order to accelerate professional development and maximize career trajectory.

  • Performing financial analyses and valuations
  • Conducting industry research
  • Identifying and contacting potential buyers or acquisition targets
  • Preparing confidential information memoranda and management presentations

During the JumpStart session on May 11th, learn more about the company, context about careers, and recruiting guidance.
