Cornell Lectures in Finance is a series of six to eight lectures given by Cornell (mostly Johnson School) alumni who have achieved professional success in their business endeavors (primarily finance). Invited by the instructors on the basis of their ability to discuss interesting and relevant issues and experiences in finance and management, each session will begin with a presentation by the invited guest (1.5 hours), followed by a break and then a 1 hour of Q/A – about the topics raised in the lecture as well as issues related to current events and other experiences of the lecturer. The intent is not only to provide Johnson School students with exposure to the thoughts and wisdom of our guests, but to do so in a format that allows sufficient time to explore some issues in depth and engage in meaningful exchanges (which are often constrained by the conventional 1.25 hour class session). The goal of the class is to afford students exposure and interaction with a diverse variety of "Wall Street" guest lecturers, with subject matter including but not limited to activist investing, distressed investing, macro-economic investment discussion, regulatory issues and applied valuation methodologies.
