It was a really great experience - I got to meet lots of inspiring young people doing amazing things and I have particularly enjoyed the mix of cultures and opinions in the group. Banking is the career I want to go into and being able to see what happens day to day within a bank is very exciting.
Overall it was a good insight to banking and how the bank works. We got to meet a lot of people from the industry. At the same time, we had presentations on the different areas in investment banking and did games on how trading actually works. Also, we got to work in team by a final project.
I really enjoyed the blend of speakers and educational sessions. This gave a variety in style and was very well organised. It meant that we received formal training and more informative networking opportunities and chances to get real-life insight to different employees' experiences at this Swiss Investment Bank here in London.
It was an interesting experience as I was able to learn more about UBS and it’s business areas, as well as it’s culture and workplace ethics, through a jam packed programme filled with presentations, workshops, case studies and networking sessions. It was an exciting opportunity to learn more about the firm through the insight programme.
Great time at UBS, so many friendly people and an amazing overview of the company. Got engaged with all divisions from tech where we learned to code with python to sales and trading where we managed our own portfolio. An outstanding opportunity to understand the industry and UBS culture.
I really enjoyed this spring week, I thought that the range of divisions and business areas they exposed us to helped us to develop a comprehensive understanding of the range of jobs available. Moreover, the use of workshops after sessions allowed us to put what we learnt into practice and in a group setting.
I very much enjoyed the programme, as we were introduced to many business areas including the Investment Bank, Asset Management and Technology. However, students who are less interested in technology were neglected with the choice of topics on the presentations, as this was geared to students that study engineering etc. .
I thoroughly enjoyed the insight program. I gain valuable information regarding the various business areas. The presenters came prepared and were really informative. I like how the program involved hands-on workshops which were really useful in gaining an introductory glimpse into the industry but at the same time staying casual.
No complaints, each business area and the possible job roles within were presented in an understandable and interesting manner. Extra workshops and case studies were added which made the insight enjoyable as we got to step in the shoes of those who worked there. I would definitely do it all again if I could.
