About this Event

If you're not a numbers person, then finance can be intimidating and easy to ignore. But if you want to advance in your career, you'll need to make smart financial decisions and develop the confidence to clearly communicate those decisions to others. In How Finance Works, Mihir Desai--a professor at Harvard Business School and author of The Wisdom of Finance--guides you into the complex but endlessly fascinating world of finance, demystifying it in the process.

About the Author: Mihir Desai is the Mizuho Financial Group Professor of Finance at Harvard Business School and a Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. An award-winning teacher and a leading scholar of corporate finance and tax policy, Professor Desai has been educating varied student populations for nearly twenty years, including senior executives from around the world, MBA students, undergraduates, and lawyers. Professor Desai has published more than 25 case studies and a casebook, and he has testified before the US Congress on policy issues. He is the author of Wisdom of Finance (2017), which was long-listed for the Financial Times & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award.
