    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • I think the Female Insight Day was a very valuable event which gave me a good insight into the investment and corporate banking industry as well as information about the Bank itself.

    5/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • I felt engaged from the begininng of the event and had an opportunity to talk to many female and male representatives from the Bank (gradutes, HR Team, executive and managing directors).

    5/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • The event provided us with help and support in every way possible, There was always somebody from the team to answer our questions and help us with even small problems such as bringing missing chairs or company booklets. A broad variety of graduates, speakers and panellists enabled us to get a very good insight into all sectors.

    5/5

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • The information I received will certainly help me in the application process and understanding what investment and corporate bankers do in their jobs. I have learnt what skills are important to pursue a successful career in investment or corporate banking in MUSI, and what type of employees they are looking for.

    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • I found the event very well organised. I think it was a brilliant idea to let us network with some of the representatives even before the event started. I spoke to the HR Team first and the way how they presented MUSI/BTMU to me only increased my interest to hear more about the Bank from the presentations and discussions later on.

    5/5

  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • The atmosphere was very welcoming and friendly. Everybody was very helpful and keen on answering our questions.

    5/5

  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • They gave us a great guidance into application and interview process. This whole event broadened my view of a banking industry and if I ever have a chance to work as a banker I would feel more comfortable and confident due to knowledge and experience I have gained from this Insight Day.

    5/5

  • 8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • One part of the programme included a discussion with the recent graduates who joined the Bank. This was extremely useful ,as they explained us what they did as interns at the Analyst Programme compared to what they are doing now as full time employees. We could have noticed how now they have more responsibility and are allowed to take on bigger projects.

    5/5

  • 9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  • I am always of an opinion that if you want to understand company culture, the best way to do it is to talk to its representatives and understand their values, the way they operate and that type of people that work there. Talking to people from different sectors and listening to the managing and executive directors speaking about the company enabled me to undertand all these things much better than looking it up online.

    5/5

  • 5/5

    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • All attendees were reimbursed their travelling expenses fully or partly.


  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • I managed to talk to more than 6 employees from different teams and stayed in contact with some of them.

    5/5

  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • We had networking opportunities after each part of the programme (before the start of the event, afte first presentations, after the panel discussions and after the last chat with graduates) so there was a plenty of networking opportunities. In terms of social networking with other students, we were sitting at the round tables which made it easier to communicate with each other. I can say I made some friends amongst students there and stayed in touch with them.

    5/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • It is individual for each company but from what I heard about MUSI/BTMU , they all know each other in the office and are friends outside the work as well. They try to build long-term relationships not only with the clients but also with each other. This is another thing I really like about the company. They work in a friendly atmosphere and as a team.

    5/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • Without any hesitation- absolutely yes!
