Analyst, Lincoln International

Chicago, Illinois

I liked that my majors combined very advanced quantitative classes with heavily research-oriented writing classes.This well-rounded knowledge set is suited to working in a middle market investment bank like Lincoln International, where the analyst is not only responsible for financial analyses, but also for conducting research and creating the written documents used in transaction processes.


Undergraduate Program


The possibilities for our alumni are endless.

Business Economics and Public Policy (BEPP) students have outstanding job placement records and high starting salaries. About 95 percent of BEPP seniors find jobs before winter break with very competitive starting salaries.

Recently BEPP grads have taken analyst positions in such companies as McKinsey, Bain, Deloitte, Accenture, PwC, KPMG, Barclays, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Lazard, Google, Microsoft, IBM, Nielsen and P&G.

BEPP graduates are equipped with strong critical thinking skills, rigorous economic modeling frameworks, and solid data analytic techniques that can be applied to market research and economic forecasting for businesses, financial institutions, governments, policy organizations, and beyond. BEPP’s liberal-arts foundation in broad-based critical thinking skills gives our majors a wider perspective and added adaptability to different industry settings than most other business majors, which ultimately opens up a wide range of career opportunities.
