Have you heard of World Trade Week? Each year in May, trade organizations and businesses come together to celebrate and promote international trade. Events and seminars are taking place all month around the city. If you have an interest in international commerce or want to network with professionals, check out the full calendar of events. Some events require paid registration, but others are completely free.

Definitely check out “MCC Young Professionals Going Global”, a networking event that will be held in the West Village next week.  Tickets are $15, but refreshments will be provided.

The kickoff to World Trade Week in NYC is held at Baruch each May with an awards ceremony and breakfast. This year, I helped organize a “Share Your Knowledge” station where guests could submit tweets that would be displayed live throughout the venue. Check out some of the tweets we sent out below!

2nd Zicklin-Capco Conference: Industrialization & Innovation, A New Perspective


According to financial headlines around the globe, the banking industry is on a steady rise from the great recession era. America’s biggest banks are making profits, the government is earning money from its bailouts of institutions and the Obama Administration is pushing new financial rules, but the bigger picture is being lost. Many risks still remain as regulation is more complex, return on equity is too low and costs are still rising.

So where do we go from here?

The 2nd Zicklin-Capco Conference in Finance – Industrialization and Innovation, a New Perspective – will explore with high profile industry executive and leading researchers, how cutting-edge approaches to regulation, risk and reporting are transforming the fortunes of forward-looking institutions. There will also be a focus on a resurgence of interest in industrialization in the financial marketplace.

This event will give students with an interest in the financial industry a behind the scenes look on the Wall Street reform. Key speakers include executives from the International Continental Exchange, Jeffries, HSBC North America, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, TABB Group, Morgan Stanley, Capco Institute, and the New York Stock Exchange.
