Future of Structured Credit and,
Women in Finance: Master of Finance (MFin) vs. Master of Business Administration (MBA)
Thursday, May 29, 2008
On Thursday, May 29th, WCM will host an event at the Joseph L. Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. The event will include a presentation from John Hull, Professor of Finance at the University of Toronto, who is a very well respected researcher in the academic field in quantitative finance. In 2006, in an industry survey by ICBI, John was voted the academic who has made the most contribution to the derivatives industry over the previous five years. He is also the author of books on financial derivatives that have become benchmarks in the Derivatives industry. The presentation will be followed by a discussion of alternative graduate education opportunities for women working in the finance sector.
John Hull’s Presentation
John Hull’s 30-minute presentation is entitled “The Future of Structured Credit”. He will review the history of the current credit crisis and suggest some remedies. Banks want to securitize debt and investors want to buy AAA-rated securities. The trick is to create structures where everyone has the right incentives.
Graduate Education Opportunities: MFin vs MBA
A panel of four current Rotman students (two MFin and two MBA) will discuss the pros and cons of pursuing the MFin and MBA degree for women working in the finance sector.
