About Us
Stanford Management Company, located on campus at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, invests Stanford University's endowment funds. The endowment provides critical financial support to current and future generations of students and scholars, supplying over one fifth of the University’s operating budget each year. We aim to preserve the endowment’s purchasing power in perpetuity by achieving high investment returns while taking an appropriate amount of risk. This very long-term view underpins our process of setting the endowment's asset allocation and selecting investments and investment managers across public and private equity, hedge funds, real estate, natural resources, and fixed income.

Who Will You Work With?
We will be hiring full‐time interns to join our small, 21‐person investment team during the summer of 2023. We sit together in an open office where you will work closely with senior investment team members, contribute actively to team deliberations, and gain exposure to leading investment managers from around the world.

What will you do?
As an intern, you will work on dedicated projects and gain meaningful exposure to finance and long‐term investing. You will present in weekly investment team meetings, interact with investment managers, and help monitor existing investments. We will train you in financial modeling and due diligence techniques, teach you the fundamentals of asset allocation, and familiarize you with the process of selecting high- quality investment managers. You will receive training and mentorship from our entire team. Successful interns may be considered for full‐time analyst positions post- graduation.

What Do We Look For?
Strong critical thinking
The confidence to ask questions and give opinions based on observations and analysis
A combination of strong qualitative judgment and quantitative aptitude
Proven work ethic and consistent attention to detail
Intellectual curiosity and a passion for investing
Outstanding record of academic achievement
Demonstrated ability to work effectively in a non-hierarchical, no ego, meritocratic, and collaborative team setting
We will consider current freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors who plan to complete a co-term from all majors and courses of study

How to Apply
You should submit your resume, unofficial transcript, and one-page cover letter describing your interest in the position and how you heard about this opportunity via the Handshake website. Applications are due by October 19, 2022.
