Back to exams

Posted by Don on 09 August 2009

Hello there,
it feels like being back at school - just more intense. Our Global Markets training is being delivered by seasoned pros - the teachers all have worked in various roles in FX, FI, equities and so forth for all the major banks for at least 10 years each. So they teach us very relevant stuff - often from a slightly different angle than professors taught at school.
The workload is considerably higher than at LBS - training starts at 8.30 and goes through until 6 pm with an hour break. So we are filling a binder each week. And - we have an exam every Friday which we need to pass with 70% or above (no more the curve is your friend...).
But it is very good and interesting - especially to see how relevant the courses at LBS are. We have graduates from all the major US schools there and the training the three LBS guys received is clearly of top notch quality. So to all the second year students - look forward to an awesome, interesting and intense but worthwhile second year (especially in finance). To all new joining first years - you made a great choice. To all people contemplating about an MBA at LBS - do it. The academics are great, the city is superb and the people are fantastic.
Take care,
Don
