Where possible comparisons are drawn between both sets of literature.

The results of the study that specifically analyzed IS/IT investment appraisal procedures of an example of UK companies is also offered.

Its hard to convince students and their family that support them in this difficult economy that being the best designer means anything tangible. Thanks because of this article, Cal. However, please note that there are different motivations for entering banking. Also, I think that at least in quantitative fund the craftmansmanship can be applied by you basic principle very well, since there’s a variety of skills you need to master perfectly.

I also disagree that entering finance means adding to the “brain drain”. Obviously there are certain fields of financing of doubtful use for society but I assume that everyone agrees that we need strong banking institutions and most people also understand that investment banking services and products are essential for our overall economy. It seems unfortunate that so many of the smartest people in the country are giving up their dreams (like playing music, acting, or writing) so they can impress other folks with an exclusive job name.

I should be careful to notice that the choice to simply choosing from a little menu of default options is not following “dreams.” My last book episodes that idea. The choice I’m suggesting is to build up a more nuanced vocabulary of how you see the work and make this decision. It’s about being much more conscious about your life choices really, to live with integrity.

I like this way of putting it. I concur that we need bankers. But we don’t need 36% of Princeton’s graduating class becoming bankers. It should be a small number of people like you, who have analyzed an art specific to quantitative fund and who discovers it interesting, who proceed to that industry, not just a third of the graduating course.
