GSB Rings NYSE Closing Bell

Today at exactly 1 PM local time, a crowd of GSB students, staff and faculty joined guest Duncan Niederauer, CEO of NYSE Euronext, and Dean Saloner in ringing the closing bell for the New York Stock Exchange remotely, via satellite feed.

This was a first for most, if not all, of us and it was fun to participate in this 150-year old tradition.

Registration for Winter Campus Visit Events Available 10 December 2010

We are very excited to announce our Winter Quarter Campus Visit schedule, and are pleased to report that all info sessions and class visits will take place at the new Knight Management Center.

On Friday, 10 December 2010, initial registration will open for Winter class visits and information sessions. The first information session will be held on Friday, 7 January 2011. The first opportunity for class visits will be Thursday, 13 January 2011.

Please be aware that attending one or more of our on-campus events is neither required nor expected. Our events offer a chance to experience a day at the GSB, but do not result in preferential treatment in the admission process.

This past quarter, we accommodated almost 700 class visitors. Based on our survey results, almost everyone enjoyed their class visit.

We look forward to seeing you in the coming months.

Take care,
Joe Sicora
Admissions Coordinator
