Adventis Financial Modeling Certification Program

ADVENTIS
Financial Modeling Certification (FMC) Program
One Day On-Campus Bootcamp

Are you interested in pursuing a position in investment banking, private equity, equity research, or other competitive fields in finance?

The Loeb Center's Traub Careers in Business and Finance program has partnered with Adventis to provide students with all the resources needed to understand the finance industry, the life of an investment banker, the recruiting process, and the technical skills needed to ace the finance interviews and excel in the finance industry.

In addition to online resources (if you aren’t registered, email Stephanie Hockman), Adventis is hosting 1-day intensive bootcamps on two occasions this semester to teach the proven Financial Modeling Certification (FMC) Program. The bootcamp provides hands-on financial modeling training using Adventis’ unique training style, which consists of having students build financial models and analyses entirely from scratch, while explaining key concepts along the way. This approach enables students to retain more concepts and develop a valuable skill set. This can be used as an initial way to learn financial modeling, to supplement the online resources, or as a means to hone skills to pass the certification exams.

Management Consulted - Summer 2022 Online Consulting case preparation resources

Management Consulted - Online Case Interview Preparation courses
Summer 2022

What is Management Consulted?
The Loeb Center is excited to announce the continuation of an exciting partnership with Management Consulted (MC)! Management Consulted is the world’s leading resource for consulting and case interview preparation. Through this subscription, you’ll have access to MC’s full library of resources online.

What resources are included?
We have provided you with access to MC’s entire library of digital resources that include:
* 500+ practice cases with solutions
* 8 online video courses (90+ hours of video content)
* 10,000 case drills (e.g. case structure, math, and brainstorming drills)
* Content covers consulting case and fit interviews, mental math, PowerPoint, Excel, networking, resumes, cover letters, and more. It’s an A-to-Z coverage of everything you need to know to prepare and Ace your upcoming interviews.

Do I need do use all the resources offered by Management Consulted?
No! Use the resources that will be most helpful to you. We recommend dedicating most of your preparation time to the resources on case interviews and fit interviews. The practice cases are particularly valuable.
Below are some options for how you could focus your preparation over the summer. Everyone is different, so we recommend focusing on areas that need the most improvement.
• If you did attend the Level 1 workshop on May 1, 2022: Practice 1-2 cases each week out loud, preferably with a partner. Focus on areas of improvement that you identified during the Level 1 workshop. And don’t forget to attend the Level 2 workshop on July 17th!
• If you did not attend the Level 1 workshop in May (or want more preparation): Complete the “Case Interview Bootcamp” online resources over the summer, preferably spread out over multiple months. Once you’ve finished watching the MC videos, practice casing out loud with a partner 1-2 times a week. Then, attend the Level 2 workshop on July 17th.

How do I access the resources?
As of June 1st, you can register HERE. You will have access immediately to all resources once you register.
Once you log in, click on “My Account” in the top left corner of the website. From there, you will be able to see all the resources you have access to.

How long do I have access to the resources?
June 1st – September 30th

How can I find people to practice casing with?
There are students who are eager to practice. We have established a list of those student in the Summer Case Consulting Practice Cohort. If you are not already part of the cohort, you can email Stephanie Hockman (shockman@amherst.edu) and she will add you to the list. You will coordinate among yourselves for dates/times to get together. The KEY to success is PRACTICE.

Melanie Yazzie: I Came from this Reservation

The Department of Art and History of Art is pleased to present artist Melanie Yazzie and her gallery show, I Came from this Reservation.

The show runs from September 19th to October 14th in the Eli Marsh Gallery in Fayerweather Hall. The show is open from 10am - 4pm Monday thru Friday and 12pm - 4pm on Sunday (closed Saturday).

We would like to thank the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for their sponsorship of this event.

Bio of Melanie Yazzie:
As a printmaker, painter, and sculptor, Melanie Yazzie’s work draws upon her rich Diné (Navajo) cultural heritage. Her work follows the Diné dictum “walk in beauty” literally, creating beauty and harmony. As an artist, she works to serve as an agent of change by encouraging others to learn about social, cultural, and political phenomena shaping the contemporary lives of Native peoples in the United States and beyond. Her work incorporates both personal experiences as well as the events and symbols from Dine culture. Her work is informed and shaped by personal experiences.

The psychology department is looking for students to join our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee. We are interested in building community in the department through social and academic events (summer research panels; career panels; visiting lectures).
