We registered every day and then I took part and watched numerous workshops and seminars presented by UBS employees on the firm's culture, different divisions, employee networks, recruitment process and case studies. Also took part in networking events with employees and fellow insight participants and took part in activities to learn more about financial markets.
The program kicks off at noon with a registration, after that we would jump in to our first session, which could be an overview of a specific division (Global Banking/Markets etc), with a Case Study hosted by the panel. After this, we would typically have a more sessions throughout the day from a vast range of speakers, with the opportunity to have all of our burning questions answered at the end of each session.
Plenty of insight sessions on the different business areas at UBS, some networking sessions with employees and the cohort, as well as some presentations on the culture at UBS. At the end, we were given some helpful tips on acing interviews and what to expect in the next few months.
I attended panel sessions with senior employees and graduates every day with an afternoon dedicated to training the cohort on the structure of the financial market and commercial awareness. I learnt more about the different roles available and the culture at UBS.
The UBS Spring Insight week consisted of a 9 am registration with 2 of the members of UBS who were our go to people if we had any inquiries during the week. They would then give an overview for the day ahead then follow up with introducing the first guest speaker. We were given an opportunity to ask questions throughout and were encouraged to connect with the guest either via LinkedIn or the UBS email.
