Cvent Transition Guide


CFA Society New York’s Young Leaders Group in collaboration with CAIA New York, and Columbia Business School EMBA program will host a virtual networking event on Thursday, October 22, 2020. Through rotating breakout sessions, young professionals will have the opportunity to network with their peers who have committed to earning credentials such as the CFA charter, CAIA charter, and MBA degree and to learn how those credentials have helped propel their careers forward.


Participants will have the opportunity to virtually connect with young professionals regarding credentials such as the CFA charter, CAIA charter, and MBA degree.

Operationally, participants will be organized into small breakout rooms of 3-4 people on Zoom and have 10-12 minutes to speak with the representatives who hold 1 or more of the above credentials.

At the end of the session, we will call time and virtually move participants to the next breakout room. Rotations will continue for 45-50 minutes.

We will wrap up the event with closing remarks.
