Confessions of a Lapsed Physicist

Michael Bos
Wed Jan 17, 01:30-02:30pm, 32-123

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Single session event

Ever wonder what happens if you leave the Ivory Tower for the hustle and bustle of Wall Street? I will talk about how a quantitative finance department works at a major investment bank, the kinds of opportunities and challenges that await physicists (and other scientists or engineers) who take the plunge, and how life on the Street differs from life in Academia.
