  • Finance Forum NY

    More than 250 MIT Sloan alumni gathered in New York City on April 20, 2012 for a series of talks and discussions with the School’s finance faculty and other experts. At the event, faculty discussed MIT Sloan’s commitment to train the new generation of finance professionals, its role in policy analysis, and the School’s growing finance course and degree offerings, including the Master of Finance (M.Fin.) program, a complement to the already successful MBA Finance Track. Other presentations at Finance Day included an exploration of how economic booms and busts shape the career paths of CEOs, from Professor Antoinette Schoar, Michael M. Koerner (1949) Professor on Entrepreneurship, and a panel discussion on financial reform featuring Ricardo Caballero, Ford International Professor of Economics at MIT, Blackrock co-founder and chief risk officer Bennett Golub, SB ’78, SM ’82, Ph.D. ’84, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission chief economist Andrei Kirilenko, and Deborah Lucas, MIT Sloan Distinguished Professor of Finance.
