GWSB Undergraduate News

Duques 453, the Undergraduate Lounge does not accept reservations during finals in order to allow students to use the space for studying. Make sure to take advantage of this extra studying space!
Last Friday, December 4th, 2009, nine GW students, including six undergraduate juniors from the School of Business, visited Goldman Sachs in New York City for a half-day of presentations, shadowing and on-site networking opportunities. To help prepare the students for the visit the F. David Fowler Career Center held multiple conference calls to review the firm’s history, organizational structure and provide networking tips. Students attending the trip had the opportunity to meet with GW alumni from several divisions within Goldman Sachs to ask questions and experience the culture of the bank first-hand. Goldman Sachs invited these students to their headquarters to introduce the recruitment process for the Summer Analyst program.
