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

Particularly in my interaction with my buddy I felt very much valued and respected. Clearly, my buddy had a much broader knowledge of finance and investment banking than I currently have. Nevertheless, he approached me as an equal and supported me the best he could to achieve the best possible outcome for my research task which I presented to him at the end of the programme.

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

Again, I am very pleased and excited by the way I was treated by my buddy who shared his knowledge and expertise with me. I was able to learn many relevant aspects of deal advisory in a relatively short period of time.

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

Given the duration of the programme, I would assume that I was not able to develop key skills yet. However, the experience strongly encourages me to return to Goldman Sachs if I get the opportunity to receive an internship offer.

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
