During this two-year program for recent graduates, Associates experience three challenging eight- month rotations in a particular track or career path, in this case, Business Analysis, before joining a permanent team.

Business Analyst Rotations at AllianceBernstein
Technologists are behind every strategic decision and investment at AllianceBernstein, working closely with our business leaders to enable new and ever-evolving investment strategies, markets, and processes. Business Analysts play a key role by acting as the ‘face of technology’ to the business. As the liaison between business users and technical teams, a Business Analyst translates business needs into technical requirements, manages cross-functional projects and stakeholder communication, and provides training to the users as needed.
Business Analyst Associates are assigned to a variety of teams supporting institutional investors, research analysts, portfolio managers, client relationship managers, traders, wholesalers, and more. Working closely with Senior Business Analysts and Project Managers, you will learn key business processes, learn about AllianceBernstein ‘s products and services, and develop an understanding of the inner workings of how an investment management firm is powered by technology.
