#302 - WTF? We're Talking Finance

Episode Summary

Investment banking. Private Wealth Management. Hedge Funds. Leveraged Buyouts. Yield Curves. WTF does all that mean? This episode: We’re Talking Finance.

Episode Notes

Business Beyond Usual Producer Sheela Lal has some questions about what it’s like to study and recruit for finance jobs while in business school. Luckily, she’s surrounded by people who know a lot about that.

Sheela is joined by Michigan Ross MBA students Dana Miller and Rebecca Toth to talk about what “finance” really means, how recruiting for finance jobs varies wildly depending on the field you’re interested in, and why you shouldn’t be eating the food at networking events.


We’re bringing in experts to discuss mental health during business school, and want to help get answers to your questions. You can email us at or fill out this anonymous survey:
