Last night I went to the final round of the 11th annual investment banking case competition hosted by Goldman Sachs. Undergraduates had an opportunity to form teams of 4 and analyze a Visa IPO case. The top 3 teams presented to a panel made up of Goldman, Visa, and Fidelity employees.
Former Goldman Chief Learning Officer, Dean Lyons, kicked things off for the night by thanking Goldman Sachs for their continued work with the Haas school.
I almost signed up for this case competition, but I saw a previous year’s case and I knew I wasn’t ready to value a company. One of the seniors told me that he learned a lot about valuation when he went to last year’s Valuation Workshop. This year the same workshop is being offered on October 19, and I made sure that I signed up on the first day that sign ups were open to juniors. I’ll be sure to post something about that when I go.
