What convinced you about this program?

With its mix of operational tasks in the IB-department, marketing and the possibility to partake in projects, the program promises a good combination and variety. As you are included in the daily business life as of day one and are given the freedom and responsibility to fulfil your own tasks, you can broaden your skillset very quickly.

What has been your personal highlight in your program so far?
What struck me from the beginning wasn’t a special task or project – but the people. They welcomed us with open arms – especially our teams – and are there for you if the need arises. Additionally there are the other GTP’s. We were all introduced on our first day and are meeting up on regular basis; even after work.

What is your advice for anyone interested in this GTP?
If you have a flair for financial products, are interested in a varied program and are eager to learn in dynamic surroundings, the GTP programs might be just right for you. Be proactive, open-minded and don’t hesitate to approach the people here and ask a lot of questions!
