EduMaKate recently held our signature College2Career™ event at one of the world’s leading investment banks which took place at their New York headquarters in downtown Manhattan.
It was an exciting and insightful event for the students who got to hear from several investment banking professionals as well as take part in an interactive game which quizzed their knowledge of financial literacy and college essentials. The event also included exciting prizes for the winning students, a tour of the building and an interactive lunch with professionals.
Derrick Bass and Cindy Dishmey, two professionals from the investment banking field spoke to the students and shared their insight and experiences in navigating the world of financial investment management. Students found the event inspirational and greatly benefited from the knowledge attained.
Matt Reilly, student from Curtis High School in Staten Island noted that “This event was very informative and engaging”. Another student Michael Richardson really enjoyed the speeches from professionals and commented “it encouraged me to learn more and strive for my goals.” We were glad to see the students so engaged in discovering new potential career paths and opportunities and plan to organize more empowering events in the future.
