Update stays strong
sparks new MBA Update
School MBA Update & Leadership Series continues this winter
and spring, as the popular daylong “refresher”
course brings the Kellogg classroom to alumni around the world.
With Kellogg thought leaders sharing their expertise and insights,
MBA Update offers Kellogg graduates a special opportunity
to benefit from the latest faculty research.
8 in New York, Robert McDonald, the Erwin P. Nemmers Distinguished
Professor of Finance, presented “Understanding Derivatives:
The Key to Financial Decision-Making” as part of the
MBA Update series. Participants included Wall Street veterans,
as well as alumni from nonfinancial fields who desired greater
understanding about how derivatives impact their business.
Prof. McDonald’s recently published text, Derivatives
Markets, served as the foundation for his morning
lecture, and for the afternoon discussion led by a panel of
Kellogg alumni and attendees.
MBA Updates are scheduled for April and May, bringing senior
Kellogg School professors to you. For more information, go
