NYU Stern and AIF Sound the Gong

The second session of the international Masters of Science in Risk Management for Executives program took place at Amsterdam Institute of Finance this week. This one-year, part-time program is offered in partnership with NYU Stern School of Business with sessions held in both New York and Amsterdam.

During their busy week in Amsterdam, MSRM students representing 16 different countries were invited to sound the gong at the NYSE Euronext Stock Exchange in Amsterdam.

They follow a line of distinguished guests who have already participated in the gong ceremony, including international politicians, CEOs of companies listed on the exchange and Olympic medal winners as well as other prominent individuals and organizations.

At the stroke of 9am, Lona Mozumder sounded the gong on behalf of the MSRM students to signal the opening of trading.
