Our Program

GWI’s Summer Intensive Program inspires, educates and supports young women so that they will become leaders in the asset management business.

Our program creates a meaningful pipeline of talented and motivated women who are well vetted and well prepared to enter the industry across all asset classes including public and private equity, fixed income, credit, hedge funds, and real estate and to become skilled allocators of capital.

GWI’s mission depends on identifying promising young women and exposing them early to finance and investment concepts and industry professionals. 

In 2017, we will again focus on programs and curriculum for rising sophomores and juniors in college.


2017 summer intensive PROGRAM

Over a four-week intensive period, promising young college women will learn core finance and investment concepts and skills from some of the most respected business school professors in the country. This core curriculum will expose our students to all types of investments including public and private equity, fixed income, credit, hedge funds, and real estate, and will equip them with the skills required to excel in a career in asset management. The program will be enhanced by speakers from across the asset management industry, particularly senior women, and our students will have the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with some of the most influential leaders in the industry. We will also offer training in ethics from the CFA Institute, presentation skills, and interview preparation, as well as visits with select asset management firms. Students who successfully complete the four-week educational program will be able to add the GWI credential to their resumes, have access to the entire GWI community and continue on to six-week paid summer internships secured by GWI with leading asset management firms in the industry. 
GWI is seeking applications from rising sophomores and juniors in colleges in the U.S. and will select a cohort of 60 women. The program will be held in Philadelphia on the University of Pennsylvania’s campus (in residence) from May 27, 2017 - June 23, 2017. Paid internships with industry leading asset management firms will be available to successful graduates immediately following the program, from July 5, 2017 - August 16, 2017.

GWI’s 2017 Summer Intensive Program is offered tuition/room/board-free to all qualified applicants.
