Mentorship Program and Campus Involvement Help Rising Senior Land Internship at Goldman Sachs
Michelle Eggink, Assistant Director of Content Marketing & Communications
Class of 2024 President Tyler Street has secured a highly competitive summer analyst internship at Goldman Sachs’ AYCO Consumer Wealth Management Division and will be headed to Chicago shortly after the semester ends. Street points to the many experiences he’s had access to both on and off campus as helping distinguish him from other candidates.
These experiences have included working with BLK Capital Management, a 100% black-owned and student-run non-profit focused on investment management; participating in the School of Management’s Mentorship Program, which connects students with Marist alumni who serve as professional mentors; joining Beta Alpha Psi Finance Fraternity and the Student Government Association; and completing internships both in the U.S. and abroad.
“The School of Management Mentorship Program and getting involved with organizations like BLK Capital Management have been ultimate game changers for me at Marist,” said Street. “The mentorship program helped me get the Goldman Sachs internship, as well as so many other opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible without it.”
Originally from sunny Pasadena, California, Street said that he came to Marist College for its finance program, study abroad opportunities, and beautiful campus after being encouraged by a number of mentors and family members who are well-versed in business, finance, and entrepreneurship.
A business administration major with a concentration in finance and a minor in accounting, Street has found ample opportunities to hone his financial acumen and gain valuable experiences during his first three years at Marist. He has been reelected for his second term as SGA Class of 2024 President and was elected President of the Marist chapter of the largest fraternity on campus, Kappa Sigma Fraternity. Street also became a lifetime member of the Beta Alpha Psi Fraternity, a finance and accounting fraternity where he mentors other undergraduate students in the “Beta Buddy” program. He also belongs to the Business & Investment Club and participates in football and basketball intramurals.
Street has worked as a student financial assistant for Marist Student Financial Services, helping with financial literacy events and reviewing financial details about loan status and billing to students and parents. He has also worked as a polling interviewer for the Marist Poll, an Operations Area Manager Intern for Amazon, and interned at the CPA firm PKF O'Connor Davies, LLP.
However, Street noted that one of his most memorable experiences at Marist was spending a semester in London in the FIE Study Abroad Program, where he was able to visit over 12 countries and intern at London Mutual Credit Union as a loan administrator.
“Tyler has been making the most of his time at Marist,” said Brian Haughey, Associate Professor of Finance. “He is very active on campus both as president of his fraternity and as class president, while also managing to fit in a semester abroad in London. He has a keen desire to succeed, and his hard work paid off when he landed an internship for this upcoming summer at AYCO, a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs.”
Street’s mentor, Tom Murray ’02, Marist School of Management Advisory Board Member and Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, encouraged Street to pursue opportunities with Goldman Sachs. The relationship with Goldman Sachs developed when Street attended the investment firm’s Possibilities Summit, where only 4% of over 7,000 applicants were selected to attend and network with industry professionals at the firm. The summit led to Street securing his upcoming summer internship, where he will immerse himself in the core functions of finance and wealth management, learning more about accounting, investing, taxes, and financial planning.
Since Street entered Marist in the heart of the pandemic, he discussed how his college experience thus far has fostered a sense of resilience and opportunity.
“The class of 2024 is the class of resilience because we started our studies amidst the covid-19 pandemic back in 2020,” said Street. “Initial trials and tribulations and my incredible Marist experiences have prepared me for where I want to go in life. While Marist is a medium-sized school, with a small school feeling, it provides students like me with big opportunities.”
