Non-Targeted Southern School with No Connections, 2016 Capital Markets Analyst

So I am from a very non-targeted Southern school. I grew up in a small South Carolina town and I am the first in my family to get a degree from an accredited school. I didn't come from much money (my family was in real estate and the recession really hurt us), so I had to pay for college. For me, this meant going to a state school and graduating as quickly as possible--Bachelors and Masters in Economics in three years.

M7 MBA Stereotypes Busted!

I think this would be very helpful for MBA candidates.

I'll shoot first . Was in Chicago visiting Kellogg and Booth, met a handful of current students (& alum) and learned something I found surprising: when looking into PE resources at both schools, Kellogg's was much more impressive than Booth's (no offense to all the Boothies out there). ** If anyone has specific questions about this, send me a note.**

This was a surprise to me because of Booth's reputation as a "finance/quant" school and Kellogg's reputation as a "marketing & consulting" school.

Shots Fired - Deutsche Bank Co-CEO Cryan Says Bankers Still Paid Too Much

From Bloomberg:

"Many people in the sector still believe they should be paid entrepreneurial wages for turning up to work with a regular salary, a pension and probably a health-care scheme and playing with other people's money," Cryan said at a conference in Frankfurt on Monday. "There doesn't seem to be anything entrepreneurial about that except the compensation structures."

5 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Consulting

I worked as a management consultant for 4 years.

I learned a bunch of stuff about business and strategy and operations.

I also learned how to sound smart about something I knew nothing about, and how to use jargon to make simple things sound extremely complex.

I quit my job after 4 years and while none of these things help me with my new business, I did pick up a few valuable life lessons.

Hopefully these will help the next generation of consultants:

Here are 5 things that I wish I knew when I started consulting:

Ask an ex-IB MD anything.........

You can ask me anything. I know there are probably a lot of questions you wish you could ask your boss, but can't. I was at bulge bracket IBs in IB, quant and sales roles. Retired after a few years of making MD. I'd like to help you know what its really like. Feel free to ask anything.

3 Reasons Canadians Aren’t Seeing Lower Pump Prices

Canada is one of the top oil producing nations in the world, producing around 4.3 million barrels per day according the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). You might assume that with crude oil prices testing their August lows that Canadians are seeing extremely low pump prices for gasoline; however, this is not the case.

With WTI prices down over 50% compared to this time last year, many are confused as to why this hasn't led to substantially lower pump prices. Here are 3 reasons Canadians haven't seen lower pump prices.
