SEMI Visits The Blackstone Group


On June 28th, NYSSA's SEMI program brought us to a special meeting with Blackstone Group in New York City. Basking in the mystic and glamour of visiting arguably the greatest Private Equity powerhouse in the world, we enter a conference room where breakfast is served. A Blackstone Principal, two Directors, and an Associate greet us and walk us through a presentation that they had prepared for us, two-dozen SEMI students. You could feel the content in their expressions--they looked like they were having fun at their jobs, they were being challenged, and they didn't want to work anywhere else. After the brief, but insightful presentation, the group opened up for questions. We felt like kids in candystore. How many college juniors get a chance to ask a Blackstone Principal a question about their investment strategies? Charismatically, the PE gurus answered our questions, leaving us in even greater awe than before.

The Blackstone trip was just one example of the SEMI experience. The SEMI program is one of the premiere summer programs on Wall Street. The students at SEMI not only receive exposure to great firms but also to some of the greatest mentors in the financial services world.

If a man comes to your front door and says he is conducting a survey And asks you to show him your bum, do not show him your bum. This is a scam. He only wants to see your bum. I wish I had got this yesterday. I feel so stupid and cheap. -The Bum
