Who We Are
Piper Sandler is a leading investment banking firm headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The firm has offices across the United States and has an investment banking presence in Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco, Charlotte, Richmond, Boston, Chicago and Houston.
At Piper Sandler, we are committed to recruiting and retaining the best and most diverse talent from undergraduate schools, HBCU’s and Women’s colleges across the country. As a firm we strive to embody diversity and incorporate an inclusive and equitable approach into every aspect of our organization. One way we demonstrate this dedication is through our annual Career Exploration Program (CEP). During this program you will not only have the opportunity to learn about the possibility of exciting career paths within investment banking, but also equities, fixed income, and public finance. You will also gain firsthand insight into the people and culture of Piper Sandler and how you fit into our long-term plans.
This program is a direct pipeline for our summer 2023 internship opportunities across eight nationwide Piper Sandler offices. The CEP application process is open to students from all majors and disciplines and is designed to attract high-achieving, diverse candidates who identify as Female, Black, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Asian, Veteran, and LGBTQ students.
What’s Cool About This Program
Participants will join us for a two-day informational program in February 2022.

You will also learn about and work on some of the coolest projects and deals we have done with companies like RXBar, Café Zupas and Orange Theory, among others. Program highlights include curated one-on-ones, interactive presentations, and connections that will last a lifetime.
