Summer associates join us for ten to twelve weeks during the year
prior to graduation from their doctoral or M.B.A. programs.
Cornerstone Research designed the summer associate program to
mirror the experience of a first-year associate, including case
assignments as well as formal training. As we do for all
associates, we try our best to match summer associates with cases
of interest to them.
Summer Associates will have the opportunity to be involved in all
phases of a project. In the initial stages, summer associates
actively participate in the formulation of the work plan and the
analysis of issues. They work with senior staff, experts, and
clients to develop case strategy and to determine how best to
communicate our findings. Overall, Cornerstone offers an excellent
package of interesting work, exposure to a broad set of issues in
finance, economics, and accounting, and a high degree of personal
responsibility. Many summer associates become associates at
Cornerstone Research upon completing their graduate studies. We
offer an industry-competitive compensation and benefits package.
