Two students from the University of Ghana Business School were offered internship opportunities with Goldman Sachs and Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML). The opportunity to intern with these organisations offered the students a unique multilateral platform to exhibit their knowledge and skills, and most importantly to learn from these global giants in business.
The duo, Robert Armah Dalmeida a level 400 banking and finance student and Joyce Agbozo a level 300 accounting student had the opportunity after applying to the organisations and successfully completing aptitude tests and various interviews.
In an exclusive interview with the duo, they revealed the internship afforded them the opportunity to meet different people from diverse backgrounds exposing them to different kinds of cultures that enhanced their experiences. “I loved the diversity in the firm as it opened me up to different ideas, opinions and judgements from diverse backgrounds” Miss Joyce Abgozo added.
They also noted that the internship provided them with an international class training and career development, which has impacted positively on their ethics and skills. The two are very optimistic that the experience will enable them build value for themselves and their future organisations. They indicated that the opportunity to work with such blue chip companies helps hone not only their technical knowledge but also their soft skills. They acknowledged that their organisations gave them the right training and information needed to face the world, and were grateful for that.
They encouraged students to be confident, have a general understanding of the industry of their interests, be passion-driven and the sky would be their limit.
UGBS congratulates and wish Joyce and Robert the best in their future endeavours, they should continue to step into excellence.
