Emerging Leaders Summer Externship Program

“My externship experience at M&A was information, fun, and a great look into the firm’s work environment. I got to form relationships with current employees and create connections for possibly doing an internship later on. I would highly recommend M&A’s externship program as a way to learn about what fits you best.” – Sophia Thomas
