Macaulay Honors College Announces a New Corporate Partnership with Goldman Sachs 

 

(May 29, 2018) Macaulay Honors College and Goldman Sachs today announce a collaborative, strategic partnership that will support student experiential learning at Macaulay and broaden the base of talent at Goldman Sachs.

While Goldman Sachs has hired Macaulay graduates since our very first class graduated in 2005, the new partnership solidifies an existing relationship, creating new opportunities for students and giving the company an edge in strengthening and diversifying its workforce. The partnership will:

  • Offer career development activities to all students
  • Facilitate professional mentoring relationships
  • Introduce Macaulay students to the company at select events
  • Create a seat on the college’s Career Development Council for the company

“We are pleased that Goldman Sachs recognizes and supports Macaulay’s innovative combination of rigor in the classroom together with internship and study abroad experiences,” said Dean Mary C. Pearl. “We share a goal of transformational education for New York’s most talented and hardworking students.”

The college’s relationship with Goldman Sachs began in 2017 when Macaulay Foundation Board Vice Chair and Treasurer Anthony E. Meyer was invited to the company’s New York-based global headquarters to participate in a fireside chat with CEO Lloyd Blankfein before an assembled group of students. “The quality of talent at Macaulay, and more broadly across the CUNY schools, is obvious,” Blankfein said. “During the interactions I’ve had with their students, I see people who are smart and ambitious and who have the potential to succeed at our firm.”       

“Our new partnership with Goldman Sachs is an exciting development for Macaulay,” said Meyer. “It reflects well on the growth in stature of the College that one of the world’s most influential companies recognizes the extraordinary caliber of our students.”

Over the past few months, Macaulay and Goldman Sachs have partnered on several career and recruiting events, resulting in Macaulay students receiving internship and full-time roles with the firm. Across all CUNY schools, Goldman Sachs will welcome 26 interns this summer, which is up nearly three times the number from just a year ago.
