Sands Capital has been fortunate to host 18 interns and four externs at the firm this summer—our largest class to date. The students work across the firm, supporting the investment, operations, and client relations teams across public and private markets.
A Valuable Partnership
We believe our internship and externship programs are valuable to both Sands Capital and the community. These programs allow us to strengthen our partnerships with schools and universities, while at the same time providing students with an opportunity to learn about business and the asset management industry and to make connections that may help launch their careers.
