Event: PRMIA Seattle & Albers School of Business& Economics, Seattle University - Financial Crisis of 2008

PRMIA Seattle & Albers School of Business & Economics, Seattle University - Financial Crisis of 2008

The financial crisis of 2007-2008 will be forever etched in the history as one of the worst events in the financial industry since the great depression of the 1930's. The events triggered off a global financial crisis that shook the overall confidence and trust in the markets. It threatened a total collapse of many large financial institutions and as a result forced an unprecedented bailout of private banks by governments. The systemic risk and the global contagion impact was clearly demonstrated by the events as never seen before. The crisis left many a prestigious name to the brink of bankruptcy.

The 2008 crisis has led to extensive soul searching and some obvious learnings around the shortcomings. Many books and movies have recorded the events. The movie 'Too Big to Fail ' is believed to have captured the mood and essence of 2008 crisis well. 

PRMIA Seattle & Albers School of Business & Economics, Seattle University are jointly hosting a private screening for the MBA & undergrad university students & PRMIA members. Prof. Ekaterina Emm, PhD, Assistant Professor, Finance Deptt., Seattle University will be facilitating the session. There will be an informal discussion on the learnngs post the screening.(optional).
