New Financial Analysts with Liberal Arts backgrounds come prepared with a diverse set of skills including problem solving, communications, both verbal and written, and a unique ability to think creatively. These skills have proven extremely valuable to the Operations division.
Myth: I would not fit in because I do not have a strong business background. This may inhibit my ability to contribute to Goldman Sachs, ultimately affecting my career growth within the firm.
Fact: All new analysts are provided with the same training and orientation affording everyone the same opportunities. A business-related education is not required, but creativity, intellectual curiosity, a relentless commitment to quality, and a team mindset are.
Goldman Sachs has found that individuals who excel in Liberal Arts often share these characteristics, enabling them to excel in our work environment and to be rewarded with accelerated career advancement.
Myth: I sought a Liberal Arts major because it nurtures my creative tendencies and taps into my strengths to think outside the box. A career in the financial industry would stifle my creativity.
