It's time topics such as data science, analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence are made a compulsory part of the higher secondary educational curriculum, everywhere; in addition to teaching regular CS Computer Science distinctly in labs.
Educationists and Educational Technologists must play their due roles in transforming pedantic environments.
Unfortunately, many nations have missed the boat, because they didn't introduce pedagogical cum didactic reforms at the right time.
Skill transfer is a must!
I see so many MBAs who still don't know how to use advanced XLS modelling techniques.
Most of them really suffer when they enter the workplace.
One of my students got sacked because he didn't know what #VLOOKUP or #Lookup #Excel functions are.
I always make it a point to take my students to the lab, but other professors and adjunct faculty members just don't do this.
Have complained to the Dean.
Running MS PowerPoint Slides is like taking students to the Cinema.
Always ask the lecturer/ tutor or whomever, it may be, to provide source material references at the end of the PPT slides, and perfectly properly make author/date style citations.
The rubbish some teachers bring to the classroom is all copied and pasted from the net.
No clue!
It should be the responsibility of the Dean or the Head of the Faculty or the Chair, to review lectures put up by the staff.
A #QAA(Quality Assurance Audit) Program would ensure that flag raising is done as and when standards are not being met in the Higher Education Sector
No faculty member should be allowed to teach anything from anywhere!!
They should always teach courses from a book as recommended by the Head of the Faculty.
Yes, journal articles + #monographs should also be used at the higher level.
MBA is not meant for MONKEYS
I have caught preposterous, mendacious imposters at various business schools who teach as Adjunct Faculty Members only based on their relevant professional experience.
Case studies should be relatable to some academic concept or theory.
Business Education should be formalized.
Teaching Asset Pricing or Corporate Finance to MBA Finance students without explaining its academic antecedents?
Derivations are just one element of finance and economics education.
The students should be taught how to apply theory to reality using interactive exercises.

To wade off vulnerability, you have to overcome the sense of insecurity and helplessness.
Many individuals are overtaken by this psychological condition, which ruins both their professional and personal lives.
Be strong by commingling with the right people.
You can learn a lot from both negative and positive aspirations.
Negativity is not an abnormal feeling which we should avoid at all times. It just tells us to be watchful and careful.
Similarly, Positivity helps us to remain optimistic and open-minded.
I, as a middle office risk management professional, have become largely negative about everything.
That is how we work and are trained at firms.
Not a good profession to join if you would like to see the brighter aspects of life.
Regret becoming one!

What is better in a banking career, risk management or internal audit?
Difficult question.

Depends on where you are and what you have studied in the past?
Risk, is an emerging area, within the first world. Just visit the financial careers website to check out the jobs in Citi and elsewhere.

Open-end or Closed-end Balanced Funds cannot find financial sponsors these days.
60-40 portfolio or 50-50 proportional mix is dying a slow death in Asset Management and other forms of Client Investment Portfolio Management.
Unit Trust Schemes have suffered much due to neg rates
Mutual funds usually around the world are not allowed to sell short or engage in derivative transactions and structured products.
Most of the regulators want collective investments schemes to remain prudent.
I guess they want to protect the unit holders from gamblers ruin risk?
But if you dislike volatility you would opt for a closed-end fund, whereas if you have a larger risk appetite you would have opted for open-end structures?
Close-end funds usually trade at a discount to the NAV and might have capital locks.
That is a challenge for the #EMH Theory

I have met many mathematicians, #engineers, and #statisticians, from different countries, but, the ones that are graduates of #French and Belgian Universities are probably the best that I have come across.
What makes these countries so proficient when it comes to teaching #maths?
During the early 1990s, most of the #Quants and Financial Engineers who joined the Financial Services industry in the City of #London came from France.
French Mathematicians changed the way banking & asset mgmt was done.
Actuaries at @CityUniLondon dominated Insurance
Neither @LBS nor @LSEEcon contributed to the development of the #Quantitative Finance or #Actuarial Science Professional Cultures in the City.
The major contributors were @hwugradfutures and @CityUniLondon
To date, LBS does not teach Financial Engineering as a pathway

Some people do bad things, but, they don't look bad.
They are others who do good, but, they don't look good.
It's how we are intrinsically made, that shapes our personality, defines our intentions and describes our actions.
Our #DNA is the repository that informs our evolution.
Ask the maker why he made it?
Not from the doer.
We human beings are at the receiving end, always!!
We are what we are!
We all are made according to a certain specification list.
If we try to mutate ourselves forcefully too much, we won't remain what we are.
Be #Adaptative without violating the complex laws of nature.

The fascination with Germany, the two wars, and the image of Herr Hitler continues to sell well in the UK.
The academic & general interest in the Third #Reich, Nazism and the Nazi party officials is a product which has generated economical worth
in billions
From Movies to Degrees
I am firm of the opinion that the #UK left the EU not because they were Anti-Bureaucracy in Brussels, or didn't want the immigration from the continent to disturb either the labour market or the accepted standards of behaviour.
It is the hatred of the #Hun that made them do this.
On the opposite side in #Germany or any other EU Capital, if you talk to the common man or woman in the streets, they are hardly cognizant of either the UK's past anxieties w.r.t the WW2, or Venom of English Nationalism, anymore.
It is a prelude to the past.
They have moved on!
