Enjoy an exceptional learning experience.

Each summer, we welcome undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students to a 10-week summer internship program designed to provide an exceptional learning experience. As an intern, you will work alongside AQR professionals, be immersed in AQR values, learn through our Quanta Academy, collaborate with peers and demonstrate your abilities through projects tied to the actual work of our firm.

Outstanding performance as a summer intern often results in an offer of full-time employment upon graduation.

The summer program, which is our primary source of full-time analyst hires, focuses on the following key elements:


Quanta Academy Summer Term provides classes ranging from understanding AQR to group-specific training, led by internal and external faculty.



You will work on a summer-long project, collaborating with colleagues at all levels across AQR and presenting your work at the conclusion of your internship.


Managers and mentors will provide you with ongoing guidance and feedback to help you succeed.


The AQR intern experience includes networking activities and events, culminating in the annual Innovation Competition, a popular event that highlights our culture of problem-solving and sharing insights.
