    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • The programme gave great insight into what day to day life in an investment bank is like, despite not being able to go into the office. We were able to network with people throughout the bank and of different seniorities and so we could get as broad an understanding of the bank as we chose.
