If you want to work on energy deals, Canada is a good place to start.
And within Canada, most of the action is in Calgary – from both the Big 5 Canadian banks and the bulge bracket banks.
Sure, energy deals do take place in other locations, but it’s hard to beat Calgary for the depth and breadth of the experience you’ll get.

- How the Big 5 banks and bulge bracket banks operate differently.
- What to expect in terms of deal flow, technical work, and office culture.
- And even major industry trends, such as crude-by-rail and royalty stream deals.
