We are always looking for talents. We believe that diversity is crucial for our success and competitiveness. To us, diversity means attracting talents with different background, ethnicity, interest, and sex, having studied at a wide range of universities and field of studies within finance. To this effect, Carnegie annually awards Carnegiestipendet to two committed and motivated students with analytical skills and an interest in finance. The grant is offered to students which can offer the best explanation as to an internship, and a Carnegie-mentorship and financial support will mean for their future. This is one of several measures taken in 2021 to contribute to diversity in the financial industry.
