This year, four of the five students selected from Ghana to participate in the Goldman Sachs, London spring internship programme are Ashesi students. This will be the fifth year in a row that Ashesi students have won the opportunity to intern with one of the world’s largest investment banks—Goldman Sachs. The students were selected from hundreds of applicants who applied from universities across the nation.

The Ashesi students who were chosen this year are Efua Quaye, Nasiru Braimah, Nana Yaw Nketia and Derrick Crentsil, all second year students. This brings to twelve, the number of Ashesi students who have had the opportunity to intern with Goldman Sachs over the past few years.

The selected representatives from Ghana will join some of the world’s brightest students from across the globe at the Goldman Sachs offices in London. The internship 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.

Olivia Morley, of Graduate Recruitment of Human Capital Management Division of Goldman Sachs had stated “we continue to be impressed with the calibre of students being nurtured by Ashesi University.”

Selected Ashesi student, Efua Quaye, was overjoyed to learn that she would be participating in the programme, “I believe the education I have received at Ashesi has prepared me to take advantage of a great opportunity! I am indeed excited!”

Ashesi’s Founder and President, Patrick Awuah remarked, “It is very gratifying to see Goldman Sachs engaged in Africa and Ghana. We are thrilled to see Ashesi students chosen to represent Ghana, and we are confident that the experience and networks that they gain at Goldman Sachs will be of enormous benefit to their career development and to Ghana’s economy.”
