If you are interested in a little something that we like to call transformational experiences-- in stepping out of the country, out of your comfort zone, and out of the cubicle-- we invite you to spend a year doing public health work in Laos, working for a major newspaper in Cambodia, or improving road safety in Vietnam. Or have you considered spending a year exploring the remote areas of Mongolia as a finance analyst with a micro-finance lending bank in Ulaan Bataar, or finding the best dim sum in Hong Kong while writing for a leading newspaper? Princeton in Asia offers year-long fellowships for graduating seniors in 21 Asian countries and regions in a variety of fields: access to education, environmental sustainability, economic development, public health, access to information and social justice. We also offer you the opportunity to form relationships with people that live millions of miles away from everything you've ever known, and discover true and lasting friendship in the most unexpected places. So come on, what are you waiting for? To learn more from a former Ford and PiA Fellow, Benjamin Van Son '13 (PiA Cambodia '14/'15), please come to the Princeton in Asia information session on Tuesday, October 31st from 6:30pm-7:30pm in Bryn Mawr Room, Dining Center at Haverford College.

Social Innovation Intensive (every Thursday during semester) (Thursday, January 25th 2018 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST)

October 12, 2017 - 5:51pm
When: Thursday, January 25th 2018 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST Location: Social Innovation Intensive Apply here: https://brynmawr.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5mR3S5WmD0Xc6mp What is the difference between new and innovative? What does innovation look like in public policy? Healthcare? Education? Literature? Theater? How can a new idea lead to transformative impact? How can your idea lead to transformative impact? The Social Innovation Intensive will give a select group of students an incredible opportunity to work with Bryn Mawr alumna Leslie Mitts, Ph.D., to deepen their understanding of innovation and learn how innovations move from thought to process and implementation to product and impact. Participants will have opportunities to explore their own strengths and opportunities for growth in the process. This intensive has been thoughtfully crafted to provide touchpoints on innovation in business in public policy, in literature and theater, in education, and in healthcare. Isolating these innovations – not just what made/makes them new, but how they manifest, how they are better and how they are different – is an important first step to help conceptualize change. Participants will also read a number of case studies, beginning with an overview/selection from Bloom’s Genius, and then focusing on a selection that crosses political science, finance, and the natural sciences from each of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries to provide rich and enriching intellectual placeholders. Participants will implement what they learn in real time by focusing on the process of social innovation. There is a misperception that “innovation just happens” or that “some people are just innovative.” Wherever people are naturally more comfortable, there is still a process that can be learned and harnessed to support individual accomplishment. The final set of sessions will lead up to the experiential component of the intensive, which is present through and dominant in sessions 10-12. The experiential component will conclude with a showcase. This year’s project will likely be on helping prepare formerly incarcerated women to enter the job market, by connecting them with career skills and support for their personal development. Please find the full program outline attached. The application deadline for this intensive is Monday, November 6, 2017.

This intensive, led by Bryn Mawr alumna Susanna Gibbons, CFA, will cover the basics of accounting and finance, geared towards women with no background in either. Importantly, the week will begin with an overview of the different careers in finance, the choices that women have made historically, and how a conscious effort to choose power can help them find the careers for which they are best suited. Through several sessions, we will cover: -The Basics of Accounting -The Basics of Finance -Economics for finance professionals -Financial Statement Analysis and its role in decision making -The increasing important of environmental, social, and governance factors in making investment decisions In addition to these learning modules, the course will revolve around a single case study of one company, which will illustrate key elements of each session. Finally, students will be divided into different groups representing different players in the investment cycle, and will prepare a strategic analysis of the selected company from the point of view of: -Company Management -Equity Investor -Debt Investor -Investment Banker Presentations will be made to a group of volunteers representing these different professions on the final afternoon of the course. Prerequisites: Although program is designed for students with no prior exposure to these topics, some pre-work will be required. All students must take the Bloomberg Market Concepts, a 4-module, 8 hour on-line program, which will go over some basics in Economics, Fixed Income, Currency, and Equities. These modules will provide some familiarity with the topics, where to find relevant information, and will give them a Bloomberg Certification, and the ability to upload resumes & search for job opportunities.

We will prepare both the written case, and an electronic data room, and model templates to be used in the case study. Students will use that information, along with the lecture content, to prepare a brief financial model and written analysis of the case. Balance of Activities: There will be 2-3 lectures each day, 1-2 guest speakers, and 1-2 working sessions. Students will begin work on Case studies on day one, and build on their projects throughout the week.
