Sample cover letter for Internship position at Mergers & Acquisitions



Cover Letter

Dear Mr. Zörgiebel,

I am writing this letter in order to state my interest in participating in Mergers & Acquisitions class, which take place in Summer Term 2015. This course is a solid step towards my future career as a finance analyst anda businessperson and I consider it to be a top priority because of excellent structure and significant opportunities for professional development.

I think I fit this position good for a couple of reasons. First, my pure studying and scientific interests lay in the area of Corporate Finance and Investment Banking. Second, I have looked through some of your working papers and research projects and found them out very interesting for me, also from the position of subjects I have already studied here in Goethe, namely Corporate Finance and Valuation class. I think this job can help me to strengthen my understanding of Corporate Governance in banks and corporations by working on your project. Third, I still want to spend this and following semester on my studying, that is why I cannot afford to take the full internship in a bank, and for this reason part time job in the university is especially interesting for me. In addition, as a Finance person I can say that additional income would not be excessive for me in any case.
