UD undergrad receives three sponsorships from Deloitte
Sydney Anunda, an economics and finance major in the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics, has been sponsored by Deloitte for three separate prestigious career advancement and development programs.
“I am beyond fortunate and grateful to have been accepted into all of these amazing programs,” said Anunda, who is a rising junior with a minor in management information systems. “I have had quite the busy summer as each program has its own unique responsibilities, but I am very excited to take on the challenge.”
Deloitte, one of the largest accounting and consulting firms in the world, offers various programs to undergraduate students. Anunda participated in the Modern Guild, Management Leadership Training (MLT) and Global Enterprise Technology (GET) programs.
Modern Guild is a four-week intensive program that focuses on market research, consulting, industry trends and business case development and analysis. Anunda underwent a rigorous interview process to be accepted into Modern Guild.
“Sydney successfully navigated all of the steps of the process, which consisted of four video interviews, essays and [the requirement of being] sponsored by two or more business units to participate in Modern Guild,” said a Deloitte representative.
The GET program began in May and is a six-month long internship with Deloitte during which Anunda is learning about client relations and project management.
“Sydney has an incredibly engaging personality and really strong communication skills,” said a representative from the GET program. “He is very passionate and a very creative thinker.”
Lastly, Anunda is participating in MLT, an 18-month program for high-achieving minority students interested in business. During the program, Anunda “completes monthly professional development assignments, coaching calls with professional leaders, technical skills workshops, conducts industry research,” and more, according to a program representative.
Anunda said that he has learned valuable and unique lessons from participating in these elite programs.
“I believe these programs will provide me with a dynamic skill set that puts me in a position to be a well-rounded, accomplished professional,” Anunda said.
