BHAN-LA presents its very own “Financial Modeling Workshop.”

Break into the New Year by preparing yourself for your internship or job by joining us on January 11th to learn how to model like a professional, network with fellow LA locals, and to meet Berkeley-Haas alumni in LA.

Sign-ups will be first-come, first-served, and the price will be $15 for a full day of lessons, lunch, and networking.

This is a great opportunity for Haas majors with different interests to come together and learn how to use Excel to solve everyday problems in the workplace.
