JumpStart Program – Global
In many ways, JumpStart is exactly what the name suggests: an entry-point into the finance industry from which students can continue to build and explore. Throughout the course of the program, participants receive career guidance, industry information, interviewing and networking tips, and opportunities to interact with professionals, recruiters, and fellow students from around the world.
The program is intended to serve as a pre-internship primer and is geared for college-age students at any stage of their career exploration. Some may have already landed finance internships, while others are seeking guidance about where to begin their search.

“I really enjoyed hearing each speaker’s personal journeys given their extremely diverse backgrounds. I particularly liked when they broke down preconceived notions of being a woman in finance. Hearing their enthusiasm for their current job really motivates me to pursue finance in the future.”
“[The most valuable part of JumpStart was] seeing just how many other women my age are interested in a career in finance. I found it very empowering and welcoming to see people like me, especially women, pursuing such a powerful career path.”
