“Goldman Sachs actively recruits Baylor graduates. These graduates show a skill set, determination, and poise that align with the Goldman Sachs culture. Baylor graduates have done extremely well here at the firm and we are excited by our continued relationship with this school, as some of these graduates will be the leaders of our tomorrow,” John Burpee, Vice President Investment Management Division, Goldman Sachs & Co.
Founded in 1869, Goldman Sachs has established itself globally as one of the top investment banking, securities and investment management firms. Goldman Sachs incorporates teamwork and commitment into building lasting relationships with clients to provide them with a diversity of financial services. The firm offers these services to a client base composed of financial institutions, corporations, governments and high-net-worth individuals.
Headquartered in New York, the firm has offices in over 40 cities and more than 20 countries. Goldman Sachs connects with clients worldwide with offices in major cities including Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong. The firm impacts a global market while seeking to expand its three core businesses of investment banking, trading and principal investments and asset management and securities services.
While Goldman Sachs functions primarily in the business world, the firm understands the importance of social responsibility as well. The firm funds the Goldman Sachs Foundation, which specializes in promoting innovation in education and improving academic performance of young people. Goldman Sachs recently formed a partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society to protect wilderness acreage on the island of Tierra del Fuego, Chile. The firm also gives back to the community through Community TeamWorks, which allows employees one day each year to volunteer in projects with local non-profit organizations.
