About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

The Spring Insight Week at Bloomberg was a truly inspiring and enhancing experience.
The week is made of theory lesson (regarding not only the financial markets) and practical activities which are able to give you a deep understanding of how the company works. All the staff is extremely helpful and it is ready to answer all your questions.


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

Throughtout the Week, I felt very valued. I was a bit worried before starting the Spring Week as long as I do not have a strong financial backgrounds. Nevertheless, I was able to understand and to enjoy evert activity and lesson that was organized.
Also, the group of students chosen was extremely diversified. We all had different backgrounds and it was very interesting to get to know each other during the Week.


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

The staff is ready to help at any time and they are willing to answer to all your questions. The support was fantastic not only from the point of view of the staff but also among us (the participants). Everyone was willing to help the others especially if they had a particular expertise on a topic.


4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

The skills developed during the Insight Week are very helpful for my studies and not only. In my opinion, during the week, you not only learn about financial markets and the company but also more interpersonal skills such as how to work in groups, how to approach people with a different background, how to excel as a team...
