Dear Student,

Quantitative finance has grown enormously in recent years and students  
of quantitative disciplines, including mathematics, physics,  
economics, computer science, and engineering, are consistently finding  
successful careers in the field.  The International Association of  
Financial Engineers is a non-profit professional society that fosters  
the field of quantitative finance through discussion of pivotal topics  
in the industry. One such event is “How I Became a Quant,” created to  
provide a platform for professionals to inform students and answer  
their questions about the field.

On Wednesday, March 12th, the IAFE will hold the How I Became a Quant  
evening at the Stuart School of Business at the Illinois Institute of  
Technology. This is a free event and open to both undergraduate and  
graduate students in any quantitative discipline. Our speakers,  
Patrick Bourbon from UBS, Reto Gallati from Nuveen Investments, Hilary  
Till, from Premia Capital Management, and Jennika Gold from Factset  
will be discussing their experiences in their quantitative careers and  
answering questions from the attendees. Michael Gorham from IIT-Stuart  
will be moderating.

The event begins at 6:00PM with a reception following at 7:30 and will  
be held at the Illinois Institute of Technology, 565 West Adams  
Street. We do ask that you register by Tuesday, March 11th at our  
website http://iafe.org/03122008.html. We hope to see you there.

Kind Regards,
