Join The Financial Modeling Club for its annual Finance Modeling Case Conference

About this Event

The Financial Modeling Club (BUFMC) is hosting its annual Financial Modeling Case Conference on Sunday, November 9th from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. This event is highly recommended for those interested in industries such as investment banking, investment management, and consulting. You will have the opportunity to test your Excel skills, network with professionals, hear from Laurent De Greef (Director at Acadian Asset Management), and win prizes valued up to $300.

The main attraction of the event is a financial modeling competition that will take place in the morning. We see this as a great opportunity to educate students in the Greater Boston area the importance of financial modeling. Many former and current members of BUFMC have benefited from having superior modeling skills in various careers in financial services. Modeling training is not included in Boston University’s curriculum, and we hope to fill this gap by educating students. The competition encourages participants to think critically about financial challenges that are common across industries. Utilizing creative thinking and logical reasoning, participants will design financial models that reflect qualitative factors that are often overlooked. We hope this case can convey to our participants the intuitive and creative nature of modeling. We hope to overwrite misconceptions about modeling, which people often confuse with finance wizardry.

Dress code: business casual
