The ultimate list of all the colleges, universities and business schools JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs target in Europe

Make sure you're at a target university.

Are you thinking of applying for a job at Goldman Sachs or JPMorgan after university or business school? Are you wondering which university or business schools are most likely to result in your application being successful? You might want to check that the institution you're thinking of studying at is included on the very long list below...

The institutions named below are derived from Goldman Sachs' and JPMorgan's lists of all the organisations they target for events in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. These lists aren't not infallible - there's no guarantee that JPM or GS will actually hire from these universities and colleges this year, nor that the banks actually ran graduate events at each of these institutions in 2013. However, they do reflect where each bank would like to focus their graduate recruitment efforts in Europe - and therefore which universities and business schools they typically find most attractive.

Interestingly, Goldman's list includes UK-based colleges for 16-18 year olds who haven't attended university. We've included location details and links for some of the lesser-known institutions below.
