Sime Glavan (GSB ’13) will begin each morning this summer with a commute downtown to Goldman Sachs, where he will be a summer analyst in the firm’s asset management division.
This internship will propel Sime forward in precisely the direction he wants to head. A finance major with a double minor in math and economics, Sime will work on the portfolio side of Goldman’s private equity group, helping to analyze risk for the firm’s transactions. It is a role he feels especially prepared for after working on Gabelli’s Student Managed Investment Fund.
“Given my role as an analyst in the student-managed fund, asset management is a perfect fit for me,” Sime said. “I am honored to have the opportunity to work in a field that was once obscure but now is growing at a rapid pace.”
Sime credits his work ethic for helping him to land such a sought-after internship. “The greatest advice that my parents and my older sister, who is also in finance, gave to me was to work hard from day one, and things will end up falling into place for you,” he said.
“I was always taught that nothing will be simply handed to you if you do not work for it,” he added. “That’s what ultimately drove me to where I am.”
The Gabelli administration and faculty are thrilled that Sime is reaping the rewards of his effort. Congratulations!
