AQR is a global investment management firm built at the intersection of financial theory and practical application. We aim to deliver superior, long-term results for our clients by looking past market noise to identify and isolate what matters most, and by developing ideas that stand up to rigorous testing. Our focus on practical insights and analysis has made us leaders in alternative and traditional strategies since 1998.

At AQR, our employees share a common spirit of academic excellence, intellectual honesty and an unwavering commitment to seeking the truth. We’re determined to know what makes financial markets tick – and we’ll ask every question and challenge every assumption. We recognize and respect the power of collaboration, and believe transparency and openness to new ideas leads to innovation.

About the Program

AQR’s 10 – week internship experience features the Quanta Academy: Summer Term, a structured learning program consisting of educational, skill–building and networking events. Learning is the cornerstone of our culture and plays an important role in the internship experience — through daily collaboration and interaction with employees at all levels, in workshops and classes, but mostly by working on projects that matter to the many clients we serve.
