Opportunities for a Future in the Financial Services Industry
Gateway to Leadership (GTL) provides access to the financial services industry to aspiring individuals upon college graduation who may not otherwise have a natural path into the industry, including but not limited to African Americans, Hispanics, women and students from less recognized universities. For members of the Money Management Institute (MMI), Gateway to Leadership offers an opportunity to increase their workplace diversity while providing access to an extraordinary talent pool of highly motivated young professionals.
Every year, fellowships are awarded through a national search of outstanding candidates. Leading firms—members of MMI—accept Gateway to Leadership students to work in their firms for an eight-week internship. The program is administered through an extraordinary partnership, managed by the United Negro College Fund and sponsored by MMI and its member firms.
As a participant, you will get immediate, realistic information about working in corporate America, build your resume, and when you decide that a career in this challenging industry is right for you, you’ll have a foot in the door!
“What makes Gateway unique is that it creates a two-way dynamic: It introduces top students to a range of potential career paths they may not have considered otherwise, while getting participating firms to think about the work that has to be done if they are going to address the needs of an increasingly multicultural marketplace. Gateway is a success for the students and the firms, and eventually for investors and the industry as a whole. ”
