First of all, the IFA staff greeted the students, congratulating those who passed and motivating those who did not and those who are yet to do their exams. After that, the food was ready and everybody sat down for a delicious meal enjoying their time with good company.
This event is vital for all parties included, after all networking is a vital asset any professional should leverage. The event joins ambitious & prolific professionals in the field of Finance in a single place. Both students & instructors have the same career paths and aspirations. Consequently, this event provides an opportunity for them to network and discuss field related topics in a meaningful manner.
Rawan Yassine (CFA L1 candidate at IFA): “It was so nice of Institute for Financial Analysts to hold such an event. I found it a good opportunity to grow my network, as we started sharing industry updates and potential job and business opportunities. In addition to that, getting to chat with everybody in a social stress-free situation was nice and refreshing.”
Unfortunately, a lot of students could not make it to the event, you were immensely missed. Looking forward to having everyone at future events.
