Goldman Sachs Spring Internship Program - The Africa Initiative 

This program is for undergraduate students studying in Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa. If studying at a Ghanaian or Nigerian university, you must currently be in the first year of a three year course or the second year  of a four year course. If studying at a South African university, you  must be in the second year of a three year course or the third year of a

Program attendees will be flown to London in April 2007 to spend up to 10 days in Goldman Sachs offices, gaining an insight into Goldman Sachs businesses and culture. 

The program features seminars, divisional rotations, interesting assignments and a range of social events. 

Through this experience, the candidate will gain invaluable insight into the workings of an international investment bank. You will further develop your communication, team work and commercial skills and enhance the qualities sought by employers around the globe. 

High-potential participants will be invited back to the firm the following year for an 8-10 week fully-funded internship in June/July 2008 (with the opportunity to receive a full-time Analyst offer for 2009). 

There is a two-step application process - both stages must be competed for

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.



Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.



You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.



But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.



"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.



Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.



GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.



What is the use of ideas without action?



Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.
