As part of MIT Sloan’s Innovation Period, a group of Master of Finance students participated in the Boston Capital Markets Series (BCMS). An intensive action learning experience, BCMS allowed students to put capital market theory into practice in the real world. Over three days, students visited a variety of leading financial institutions; participated in intimate chats with high ranking, experienced professionals; and toured trading floors and technology resource centers.
I wanted to let you know about this exciting feature of MIT Sloan’s curriculum, because it exemplifies a key aspect of our programs: learning by doing. A student who attended wrote that the series “ultimately shed light on where all of my coursework fits within the real world. As we pass the halfway mark of the program, any exposure to the professional sphere becomes extremely valuable.”
