The SMF program has a pre-term and seven core courses in the autumn semester. At the beginning of pre-term, we were assigned teams that we would be working with for the entire pre-term and all the core courses.
From my previous blog post, I made it seem that the life of an SMF student is just hours and hours of studying and group projects in the Bloomberg Lab. Fortunately, there are many events around Columbus that give us the opportunities to "break free" and enjoy our days to the fullest.
Session 1 of Autumn semester is over! I can't believe it's been over 2 months since the first day of our SMF pre-term. We finished our finals last on Oct 9 and then got the rest of the week off as fall break. This was our first "actual" break since the start of the program, so as you can imagine, we were very excited. My housemates and I walk by this pizza place, Adriatico's everyday on our way home, and always say we should go there. So, that's what we did Thursday night.
After finishing my undergraduate studies, I was very excited to see how drastically my life would change going through the Specialized Master in Finance program (SMF). Today, I can confidently tell you this: there's not a day goes by where you don't have something to work on.
