The Mercer Capital summer internship program provides interns with exposure to the valuation of business and securities for the purposes of financial reporting, dispute resolution, employee stock ownership plans, and estate planning, among other things. Duties primarily include industry research and internal development projects, such as identifying target industries, evaluating industry opportunities, and developing platforms from which to build expertise.
