Will you follow these leaders into quantitative finance?

Areas of Study , Featured Events Finance | Apr 16, 2012 |

Quantitative finance is exploding as a career field, leading students of all backgrounds — not only business, but also math, physics, computer science and engineering — to wonder whether it might be for them. Could an advanced degree in quantitative finance be in your future? Or a job in this line of work?

Find out from some expert panelists, including Kevin Atteson of Morgan Stanley and Barry Schachter of Woodbine Capital Management. The International Association of Financial Engineers and the Fischer Black Memorial Foundation invite all Gabelli students to:

Presentation: “How I Became a Quant: Financial Engineers Give a Personal View of their Careers in Quantitative Finance”
Date: Thursday, April 19, 2012
Time: 5:30 p.m.
Location: Lincoln Center campus, Lowenstein Building, 12th-floor lounge

This forum is designed to expose students to the viewpoints of quantitative finance professionals with varying specialties. Without formulas or PowerPoint, panelists will share their experiences and engage in a moderated discussion with plenty of time to answer student questions.

Registration for the event begins at 5:30 p.m. sharp. The program will start at 5:45 p.m., and all students and panelists are invited to enjoy a post-panel reception at 7:00 p.m.
