Are you considering an MBA and planning on pursuing a career in finance? Then you may want to look into the upcoming finance symposium hosted by MIT Sloan School of Management on Saturday, May 9th.
This day-long workshop will cover the numerous finance opportunities at MIT Sloan, including the MBA Finance Track, as well as the various conferences, electives, and student clubs available. It also offers an inside look into the admissions process and career opportunities after an MBA.
According to the announcement on the MIT Sloan MBA admissions blog, attendees will participate in MBA-level courses and round-table discussions, and have a chance to interact with faculty and current MBA students, who will join participants for lunch and chat about the MIT Sloan experience.
Maura Herson, director of the MBA and Master of Science in Management Studies program office, said in a statement that the Focus on Finance event was created to help young professionals imagine a potential future career in finance through interacting with faculty members, current students, and MBA admissions and career staff.
“Our goal is to give early-career finance professionals an opportunity to consider how an MBA, and in particular an MBA from MIT Sloan, could help them to accelerate their trajectory in the industry or to transfer their skills into a related field,” Herson explained.
Registration for the Focus on Finance Symposium is $100, and attendees who later apply to the MIT Sloan MBA program will have their application fee waived.
