what a weekend!  a heavy weekend with finance, economics and statistics.   neat.

prof. raviv continues to strengthen our finance fundamentals through ‘toy problems’ and ‘real world stories’, ably supported by fascinating fritz, the teaching assistant that makes finance-in-excel look as easy as doodling on a piece of paper!  neat+.

prof. vohra started his economics class today.  his text has a shakespearan feel to it and in just one class he took the discussion to an entirely different level … and left us with homework due overnight!  EVC = (R – c) + p.  and the fun is just beginning.  consensus opinion is that this promises to be another intellectually stimulating class.  neat.

prof. weber is up tomorrow for more statistics.  he started two weeks ago with a philosophical question “why are we here?”… and in less than 15 minutes converted a deep philosophical question into core statistical concepts.  neat+.

the neat part about the program is the “just in time” introduction of concepts.  one classes introduces a concept … and the next professor references it within his / her discussion … to result in a seamless learning experience.  neat++.
