Canada had Thanksgiving day on Monday so we had a long weekend. I was hoping to catch up with resume etc but then came the bomb. We had to submit an assignment for finance class even before finance class began on Tuesday.
Felt lost, but when I looked into what the assignment was about, I got excited. It was to calculate the Value of your MBA ( net present value). That was an awesome start to real world application of finance concepts on PV and FV that I learnt in pre-MBA.
I am not sure if other school do it too but Rotman courses so far has been always about applying knowledge to real world problems.
