Academy Week begins October 20. This intensive week immerses our first-year MBA students in the fundamentals of their focus industries, through alumni panels and group sessions, visits to leading companies in the field, and professional development enhancing activities. This week, our second-year MBA students will revisit last year's Academy Week, to give you an idea of what to expect.
Today Eric Leserman, MBA'15, shares Academy Week highlights as a student in the Strategic Finance Academy. These students work on real-world business problems throughout the year, traveling to places such as the Silicon Valley, Minneapolis, and New York for an in-depth look at the role financial professionals play in Fortune 500 firms.
