Cornerstone Research - Summer Analyst Experience

As you begin exploring options for life after graduation, Cornerstone Research invites you to explore the Analyst experience at Cornerstone Research. Our resume drop will close on February 7th, 2013 at 11:59 p.m.

About Cornerstone Research
Cornerstone Research is a leading financial and economic consulting firm specializing in the analysis of complex financial, economic, accounting, and marketing issues that arise in the context of various kinds of litigation. For example, we may be asked to predict the effect of a merger of two major high-tech firms on prices and innovation, or to determine the effect of unfavorable drug test results on the stock price of a leading pharmaceutical company, or to value a patent on smartphone technology that might have been infringed.

Cornerstone Research employs more than four hundred fifty people across our Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Menlo Park, New York, San Francisco, and Washington offices.

Summer Analyst Experience
To provide an introduction to the analyst position at Cornerstone Research, the summer analyst role closely mirrors that of the full-time position. Summer analysts work in case teams that range in size but typically include a faculty expert, senior consultants, and analysts. Within a case team, the summer analyst makes important contributions during all phases of a project – from developing case strategy, to conducting analyses, to preparing experts for testimony. Case work has both quantitative and qualitative elements, involving such key responsibilities as conducting financial and economic modeling, examining market and industry behavior, and presenting findings to colleagues and clients.

Cornerstone Research values the professional growth of its summer analysts and recognizes their contributions to clients and the firm. Consequently, many summer analysts choose to join Cornerstone Research full-time upon graduation. The analytical depth of our assignments, the breadth of industry exposure, and experience working in case teams offer outstanding preparation for analysts applying to top graduate programs in business, economics, and law, and for ensuing careers in consulting, finance, industry, and academia.

Additional information and videos about our firm are available on our website:, or our Facebook page:!/CornerstoneResearchInc?fref=ts.

How to Apply

What Do You Stand For?
Introducing ---The College of Arts and Humanities Social Innovation Scholars Program
                                        (AMST429J/ARHU439J and ARHU 386)

Starting Spring Semester, 2013
You already believe in something, right? How would you like the opportunity to work closely with a social activist who believes in the same thing as you?  To learn how to develop and implement a strategy for social innovation in a cause you care about?  The College of Arts and Humanities is piloting a new scholars program in Social Innovation.  We are looking for students who are passionate, creative and talented enough to research and develop useful strategies for a non-profit organization.  The Social Innovation Scholars course series includes two 3 credit courses taught Spring/Fall 2013 and includes a 3 credit summer 2013 internship experience.

Scholars will work with a mentor and a representative of a non-profit organization to explore the cultural environment in which the non-profit organization works and to discover strategies to navigate the cultural context in order to achieve the organization’s goals.  The program will include a class in each of the Spring and Fall semesters, and a summer internship.  The first semester, scholars will work with a mentor, a representative of their organization and with each other to explore the cultural discourse surrounding their specific concern, examine the motivations and attitude sets of the core and oppositional audiences and devise a “chess move” to address their defined challenge.  The resulting white paper will be presented to the organization for a response.  In the summer internships, scholars will work in the non-profit organization, learning about the organization and its challenges and strategies.  In the second semester, scholars will learn about strategic implementation, test their innovation and reach a conclusion as to its effectiveness.

The Social Innovation scholars program will be directed by Sheri Parks, American Studies associate professor and associate dean in the College of Arts and Humanities, who has worked with non-profit organizations across Maryland and the United States.  Through her own courses, Professor Parks has mentored more than 200 undergraduate and graduate students who have worked with non-profit organizations.  The College of Arts and Humanities Social Innovation Scholars Program
