We Invest in Our People

Learning

We created Goldman Sachs University to help our people grow professionally – starting with their orientation and integration into the firm and continuing with ongoing development over the course of their careers.

Development

From ongoing feedback to diverse talent programs, we’re committed to empowering our people to drive their own development and expand their horizons.

Apprenticeship

We emphasize an apprenticeship culture in which our junior team members learn by working closely with seasoned professionals. We believe this is critical to developing the next generation of Goldman Sachs leaders.
