The simulation includes access to accompanying finance course materials through the Harvard Business School.
NOTE: The registration deadline is noon on Wednesday, April 14th as you will need time to review course materials that will be provided through the Harvard Business School.

Because of the ongoing pandemic, we will be unable to travel to Omaha for the Annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting.

Alumni from a few of the organizations include Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Wells Fargo, and Stanford Management Company.
