December 5 – The current QSB MBA class recently had the benefit of a guest lecture from Jerry del Missier, BSc’85, MBA’87, President of Barclays Capital in New York. Mr. del Missier shared his perspective on the global financial crisis, covering the highs – and lows – of the market meltdown.

Beyond current economic conditions, Mr. del Missier spoke on the need for global regulation in a global financial system and the Lehman Brothers deal in which Barclay’s was involved.

MBA Class of 2009 President Karim Hemani said the class appreciated Mr. del Missier’s objective explanation of “how several factors came together to create the perfect storm” and that he allowed student questions to guide the presentation.
