For the third year, I'll be teaching a morning quantitative skills workshop at the Forté Foundation MBA Women's Conference, held this time in Chicago on Friday, June 18. Students admitted to Forté Sponsor schools are welcome to attend.
Here's a workshop description:
This two-hour workshop will build on the pre-work coverage of finance and accounting basics to develop insight into the ongoing credit market crisis. Rather than do a broad but shallow survey of quant skills needed in the MBA first year, I've picked a few tools and a relevant topic from the current business press. We'll dig into the basics of bond valuation and balance sheet leverage with two goals in mind:
- Whet your appetite for your upcoming MBA coursework
- Provide a status check on your quantitative proficiency.
To learn more about the broader conference, visit the Forté conference site. As of this posting, the site has information about last year's event. Information about this year's event will appear as the event planning comes together. If this link becomes obsolete, then you can start at the Forté events page.
