Sample cover letter for Internship position at sogé


Dear Sir/Madam,

As a recent motivated graduate who is eager to start in the mergers and acquisitions sector, I was immediately determined to apply for the possibility to do a summer internship for one of the leading investment banks of the world.

During the recent years I became fascinated by the M&A sector and the complexity and thrive it comes with. The possibility to determine financial strategies at an executive level, finding solutions for financing questions, the art of valuation and the excitement of the negotiation process truly passionate me. I welcome taking down these challenges with a motivated and ambitious team in a highly pressured environment and deliver high quality results to the clients at the same time. Furthermore, I appreciate the goal-orientated nature of this sector, as well as the wide range of skills set required for the different phases in the M&A process.

The long track record and specific industry knowledge have led Morgan Stanley to the top position in the investment banking league tables. Not only has Morgan Stanley been setting the standard for the industry since its founding in 1935, the global network and presence in various industries also reflects an ambitious vision and ability to adapt to the constantly changing environment. Exactly these values attract me to Morgan Stanley.

After completing my Bachelor I gained my first experience in financial advisory during an internship. I had the opportunity to have insight at the whole M&A process and gained a deeper understanding of the valuation theory. This work experience not only taught me how to deal with deadlines and clients, but also pushed me to deliver a high level of quality in everything I do. During my time at the Nike EMEA headquarters I had the opportunity to witness an acquisition from close by and discover all the complexities that come along with it. I gained first hand experience with the synergies that can arise, as well as the organisational problems. Furthermore, the MSc in Corporate Finance at the Cass Business School was able to offer me a unique combination of theory that was taught by well-distinguished professors and practise from professionals. Besides my academic career, I am convinced that my active membership of a student society and my experience in a broad range of sports created awareness for strong team values and a natural appetite for victory.

Please find enclosed my resume. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you in person.I thank you for your time considering my application.
