The week was an excellent insight into the investment banking industry and provided a great overview of all the front and back office divisions which are needed for a top investment bank to function. It was interesting to learn how these divisions worked together and have the opportunity to shadow some individuals.
People were great. Got an insight into all areas of the bank rather than just one. Talking to employees at network sessions was very easy, they were all happy to answer any questions and go beyond. They were honest about their jobs, down to earth and encouraged us to apply.
The Explore Programme was very intriguing and I definitely learnt a lot. It is particularly helpful in finding out more about each area in Nomura and which area you may be interested in working in the future. Moreover, it provided great networking sessions with not only Nomura staff but your other peers. This programme is great regardless of your level of understanding about investment banks.
I got to learn a lot about both banking and the firm. It was very well organised and the employees there were very friendly, approachable and helpful. The sessions were appropriately timed and scheduled, and I never felt that any of them were running on for too long. Would reccomend this programme to any student wishing to gain an insight to the profession of banking pre-university.
I really enjoyed it. I mainly enjoyed meeting people and learning so many new things about investment banking. I was especially lucky with how welcoming and helpful the TMT was to me, and it was a real privilege to be able to talk to pretty much everyone in the team, regardless of seniority.
The insight programme was better than I had expected. I enjoyed the variety of tasks that were given to me as this meant the two weeks went by very quickly and I was able to learn a lot. I felt it was a very immersive experience as I had the opportunity to sit at a desk and work alongside my team, giving me a good image of what the job is like.
Very positive experience! The programme is very well organised, with regular sessions so that we find out more about other teams and divisions. Also many opportunities to network with other interns. Everyone in the office is keen to grab a coffee and tell you more about their job and experiences at Nomura.
I very much enjoyed the program as it wasn't too intense and allowed me to fully utilise the resources the company had to offer without being a stressful experience. Moreover, everyone involved with the program was very welcoming and this also contributed to my enjoyment. Overall, I had a wonderful time.
I was in the tech stream and found the insight to be extremely helpful. Being assigned a buddy was useful as we could ask them whatever questions we wanted and so I learnt a lot of things compared to insight weeks at other places that are very structured. It's difficult to get to know a company in just 3 days to a week.
I found working on the desk with other employees to be very rewarding and useful, as I got an insight into the lives of investment bankers and what they do day-to-day. Everyone was lovely to work with and really made me feel included, which made the programme better as it was as if I was part of the team.
Everyone was really nice and willing to answer any questions I had. We were given a lot of independence especially when desk shadowing and organising meetings with senior colleagues which made us really feel a part of the firm and get a vibe for what it would be like to work there.
I attended the two weeks Women's Immersion Programme in technology. I had a lot of opportunity to work shadow employees in different teams in technology and also having coffee chats with employees in other areas! This really is an amazing getting to know the industry and the firm opportunity and would definitely recommend future participants to apply for this programme!
Really enjoyed the internship. It was structured very well allowing me to make the most of the two weeks I was here. As well as this, there were both training and desk placement which allowed me to get full exposure to what is on offer. Also, everyone I met were really kind and helpful.
The insight programme has been extremely immersive with both desk time and class room time, this has provided variety making it enjoyable. We have also had networking events, with chance to meet people from all levels of the business as well as ones to get to know the other interns.
Very enjoyable - I got the chance to see how a few of the divisions within Global Markets work, and what a day-in-the-life is really like. I was also set some tasks to complete, which gave me the opportunity to learn many new functions on excel, as well as some other, specialist programs that Nomura uses.
A large extent, I was exposed to the market conditions, to clients as well as pitch books created for large financial institutions. I also enjoyed that I was able to spent time with colleagues and have an insightful conversation not only about their job and what they do everyday but their journey that led them to this position today.
