Thank You: Last Monday, Current MIPP student and Citi MD, Kay Turner presented a hands-on session offering a practitioner’s approach to analyzing corporate debt in emerging markets. Her workshop was exceptionally helpful and gave the students in attendance a real-world framework to approach corporate debt valuation. Kay has been very generous in working with the Finance Club this semester, and we sincerely thank her for her time. Thanks as well to Napat Jatusripitak for planning the event.
