Hear from our 2020 participants:
Platini, Economics & Statistics Student
Fun Fact: Growing up I played for Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and I have represented the Cameroon National Football team at youth level.
Future plans: I hope to start my career in Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs and establish a mentorship network for first generation students from Birmingham
"It has been a transformational programme. Being mentored by a senior banker who took his time to teach me about the industry has aided in dismantling preconceived stereotypes and has given me confidence that I can be an investment banker"
Faye, Economics Student
Future Plans: To graduate, travel as much as possible and go into a career I am really passionate about.
"The highlight of the programme was having the opportunity to sit on the trading floor and gain an idea of the different roles and interactions within each team. I had no idea what to expect; what surprised me most was how friendly and welcoming everyone was. My advice - whatever your preconceptions are, go into it with an open mind and you will be surprised at how much you can learn, how advantageous the whole experience is, what an incredible opportunity it is to launch yourself into a fascinating new future - and you’ll also meet some amazing peers who you stay in contact with!"
Dilmeet, Politics & International Student
Fun Fact: I was the first person from my School to get accepted into ‘Oxbridge’
"The programme was an incredibly valuable experience that inspired and allowed me to develop key skills, while connecting with like-minded students and professionals. From my mentor welcoming me at Goldman Sachs and being able to speak with analysts that had been in my position, to the group case study sessions - the entire programme has prepared me extensively for the future and has ultimately improved my confidence"
