Two Ashesi University College students have been selected to participate in the 2009 Goldman Sachs Spring Internship Programme in London. The students were selected from hundreds of applicants who applied from universities across the nation. Students from Ashesi University have for the past four years won the opportunity to participate in the programme.

The two students selected this year are Ms. Afua Aidoo and Ms. Abena Nyantekyi-Owusu. The two will join some of the world’s brightest students at Goldman Sachs London later in the year. Students are selected after a series of rigorous interviews conducted by officials of the company. The programme is designed to introduce excellent university students from around the world to the workings of a leading global investment, securities and investment management bank.

Ms. Aidoo and Ms. Nyantekyi are both second year students planning to study Business Administration. Ms. Aidoo stated “I am greatly honoured to have the opportunity to work at a globally renowned firm such as Goldman Sachs. I believe the courses I have taken at Ashesi have adequately prepared me to be able to contribute significantly during my internship.”
