Taught by our staff, coached by our investment professionals, and mentored by Academy alumni, you can fast-track your investing career with the Academy.
Imagine a company that takes you on a year-long journey of learning and discovery, at the end of which you’ve become a highly-trained, deeply knowledgeable Research Analyst ready to contribute your research and ideas. That’s right – roughly ten months dedicated entirely to your development. That’s what the Point72 Academy can do for you – and it’s something no other Firm does. Are you ready to start your investing career?
Get a head start on your career and build a strong foundation at Point72 on the way to becoming a great investor.
Our annual Case Competition gives you the opportunity to showcase your investing skills by presenting a stock pitch to Point72 with a team from your university. If you’re among the top teams, you’ll earn an all-expenses-paid trip to the Finalist Weekend in NYC where you’ll rise to the challenge of presenting your case to some of Point72’s top investment professionals. Plus, finalists guaranteed an interview for the Point72 Academy Summer Internship Program, and the first place team secures their seats in one of our annual Academy Summits.
We’re inventing the future of finance, starting with how we develop our investment professionals. The Point72 Academy Summit is a one-day event and your first step in joining the next generation of the world’s greatest investors. As a Summit participant, you’ll explore the disruptive impact of big data on the markets and how to succeed in this rapidly transforming industry. You’ll work in small groups with your peers and our Portfolio Managers, Analysts, and Academy faculty, as you learn to think about investing as you never have before.
