Micheal Gadsden
From Student Leader to Wall Street

Having an analyst job lined up on Wall Street at Goldman Sacs seems like an unrealistic aspiration for many college students.  For Gadsden, however, it was a natural fit and easy transition due to his ability to manage time wisely and multi-task with ease—skills which he credits to his Emory education and involvement in student organizations for helping him build.

After being part of mock trail, intramurals, and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., serving as a sophomore advisor, being Vice President of Finance for College Council, sitting on the Emory Racial and Social Justice Commission, and starting his own organization, Emory Business Ethics Club, Gadsden was very knowledgably about the ins and outs of student activities, campus events, and how to get involved to impact change on campus and build leadership skills. He used his skills and experience to help other students connect with opportunities to establish themselves by serving as a STEER team member in Student Involvement, Leadership and Transitions. On the STEER team, Michael not only continued to build skills to help him land the Goldman Sacs offer, but regularly served as a resource for students looking to get involved.
