As an MBA student in the corporate finance and investment banking specialization, you will gain immediate access to a professional network that includes our executives-in-residence, our advisory board, alumni from our specialization, and corporate partners affiliated with our program. These connections will provide you with a competitive advantage in recruiting, understanding the finance industry, and sustaining a career in finance.
Our executive-in-residence program identifies senior executives and board members of leading companies who have successfully guided organizations through mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, restructurings, divestitures, shareholder activism, and other capital markets activities. You will learn from these executives as they link theory to practice by providing insights on what really matters in these transactions and exactly how companies, advisors, and investors interact and add value.
Through lectures, applied learning projects, and one-on-one discussions, you will gain insights on corporate strategy and leadership. Our executives are dedicated to mentoring students and helping set the strategy for the Nicholas Center.
Our current executives, Don Condon and Tom Tefft, are noteworthy board members who are passionate about our program. Learn more about Don and Tom.
