Cristina Garafola: SAIS + HNC

This clip is from a trading game during the finance mini-course offered a few weeks ago at HNC, where students bought and sold “assets” based on their expected value and then learned if their predictions were correct when the asset’s actual value was revealed at the end of the game. HNC Professor Armstrong-Taylor and SAIS Ph.D. student Neil K. Shenai led the mini-course, which focused on the basics of the financial industry as well as an introduction to personal finance.  I personally had a great time playing the game and my roommate and I both made millions (okay, thousands) of pretend “HNC bucks” by correctly predicting that the asset in this game was undervalued.  Maybe I’ll expand on my newfound skills with a finance-related class at SAIS in the fall, who knows…
