New York — July 11
Landing the right position within the financial sector is the ultimate goal of any new graduate with an eye on Wall Street. But with competition increasing, how does one gain the ultimate edge? The New York School of Finance (NYSF) Advantage Program aims to provide hands on learning to future financial leaders both from leading MBA programs and those from nontraditional institutions.
The NYSF Advantage Program initially launched its training program to offer a comprehensive training component not always realized within educational programs.
By offering training that includes hands-on learning with industry leaders they aim to bridge the gap of concept to reality. The school says this engaged learning and enhanced skill set has helped past business school and even non-business school graduates land various positions within the finance industry.
Niche programs in finance exist within academic institutions, but reliable training by industry experts outside of academia could place students with an edge in the hiring pool, according to Paul Pignataro, founder of the New York School of Finance.
"Our program was designed to complement an undergraduate business or MBA program,” he said. “However, even non-business students have been taken under consideration for finance jobs because of the advanced skills they are learning.”
Financial industry leaders are looking for the right candidates and understanding the nuances of a particular field is becoming important for our future in finance. The NYSF Advantage program offers students intensive training in accounting, consolidated financial statements, mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, valuation and introduction into the analysis of financial markets.
Through comprehensive training they can either jump right in where they are after graduation, add to their MBA or transition from one field to another.
