This was one only for the ladies!! The event was a “By Invitation” session just for the Business School female students and was organized by the Women Initiative Leading Lehman (WILL) network. The guest speaker for this event was Ms Catherine Lim, General Manager of Lehman Brothers Inc., Singapore Branch. This was a golden opportunity for us to mingle with senior executives from the Investment Banking and Capital Markets Divisions.
There were 10 female MBA students from NUS Business School who attended the talk. Catherine Lim spoke extensively on work culture at Lehman Brothers. She shared some of her memorable moments working in the firm. When asked about the life of an investment banker, she replied that one needs to be prepared and committed to this career because it involves a lot of hard work to succeed. She stressed on the fact that ‘if you don’t enjoy what you do, you will never perform in the workplace’. The session was helpful as we got the female perspective of career in investment banking. The session concluded with briefing on application process for the summer internship.
