Girls Who Invest vs Bank of America Sophomore Investment Banking Summer Analyst
Hi! Not sure if this is the right place to post. Someone made a post about something like this a while ago, but I'm going to ask it because many years have gone by and Girls Who Invest has also changed over the years.
I am a sophomore and I was wondering for people's opinions as to whether I should go forfor program or for the Girls Who Invest summer intensive program, assuming I get into both. Girls Who Invest includes four weeks of finance training in Wharton/Notre Dame followed by a six-week internship with an firm. Their partners include Goldman, TPG, , , , etc. Just to name a few. I have seen their previous classes place well and have heard great things about them. 's sophomore IBD program...pretty self-explanatory and a great opportunity as well.
I am interested in IB and BofA would be a direct internship this summer in the industry. However,super cool. As for GWI (Girls Who Invest), I've heard that it has a great network that could be life-long and I can also meet a lot of others girls from all over the country. For GWI, I've also heard it's super fun because you meet so many other girls and the girls have all placed really well for IB banks the following summer (if they choose to go into IB) & . However, for GWI, you'd have almost no control in the placement process so you might be placed in some firm that I do not like as much in some random cities.
I guess from the perspective of wanting to go into IB, would you go for GWI or for BofA?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
