Internship Highlight: GE Asset Management
This summer, four Georgetown McDonough students were selected from a pool of 44 sophomores who applied to participate in the first GE Asset Management (GEAM) internship program. Students then spent the summer at GE Asset Management’s headquarters in Stamford, CT., where they were provided housing and worked alongside other interns and practitioners at the firm.
“GEAM was a great experience; GE Asset Management really took care of the interns,” said Zach Kelly, B’17. “Our housing was fantastic and we were exposed to nearly all functions of the business in addition to our groups. I was lucky enough to be put on the trading floor and be given a Bloomberg terminal to work with. I truly believe the Fixed Income Research team valued my work, and that I left deliverables that will help them give accurate ratings for securities.”
“Programs such as GEAM’s internship for sophomores are a wonderful way to give our younger students experience in highly competitive fields,” said Rebecca Cassidy, director of the Office of Professional Development in the Georgetown McDonough Undergraduate Program. “A total of 94 percent of our students participate in internships such as this before graduation, and as a result, students are well-prepared for the workforce upon graduation.”
