The Georgia State University Financial Leadership Symposium has been going on for a number of years, focusing on a number of different topics within the financial services industry. Each time they bring industry veterans in to speak on the topic at hand and give students a special opportunity to learn about a currently relevant topic from the people directly experiencing it. The University is hosting its 7th symposium and I wanted to make all of you aware about it. See below for additional information.

The last two Financial Leadership Symposium focused on asset management and wealth managers discussing future of regulation and technology in the industry and private equity. All topics I know anyone who is looking into a MSF would be interested in. I’ve been to the Buckhead campus and the location is amazing. I highly encourage anyone considering the program to attend. The facilities are top notch and the professionals that the school manages to bring together for the event always impress.
