Goldman Sachs recently hosted the fifth edition of its Women Emerging in Finance program, welcoming 105 university students from across leading engineering and business schools to the firm’s Bengaluru office. 

The program aims to give participants insight into the financial services industry and provide a glimpse of life at Goldman Sachs.

This year, in addition to hearing from several senior leaders including the head of Goldman Sachs Bengaluru, Gunjan Samtani, the head of Human Capital Management in Bengaluru, Vidya Lakshmi and Shubha Iyer, a managing director in Engineering, participants received a tour of the new Bengaluru office.

Business school students were given an overview of the work carried out in the Global Investment Research, Investment Banking and Consumer & Investment Management divisions while engineering school students were introduced to the role that computer science, machine learning and quantitative aptitude plays in the business.

In a speed mentoring session, participants were divided into smaller groups where they had the opportunity to hear from managing directors and senior vice presidents on topics related to their career journey including interview tips and best practices, and how to transition from campus to corporate life. The event concluded with dinner with the Bengaluru leadership.

“The day gave clarity on what work Goldman has in store for engineers and how I can align my interest with the available roles” one participant said.
