FINANCE DISCOVERY MONTH

M&A or PE ? Trading or Sales ? VC or fintech ?

 

It's sometimes hard for young business school students to visualize and appreciate clearly the differences between the branches of the financial ecosystem. The Finance Discovery Month (FDM) was created to fulfill this need.

 

 

A comprehensive one-month pedagogical event

 

By combining industry overviews from training firms with experience sharing from both junior and senior practitioners, the Finance Discovery Month provides a holistic yet detailed picture of the possible careers in Finance through a series of conferences.

 

The month is topped with a CV review to launch students in their applications.

The 2020 edition

The 2020 edition took place between the 10th and 27th of november. Due to COVID-19 all conferences were held online, the advantage being that a replay was available until mid-december.

7 conferences were held, covering the following topics : Private Equity, Leveraged Finance, M&A, Market Finance (aside from quant), Venture Capital and Transaction Services.

With over 350 registered students and great overall feedback, this first edition was a success and we wish to cover even more topics in the next edition to come in fall 2021.
