Now that is more like it ! Our graduate courses started today with great turnouts both in the morning (Foundations of Mathematical Finance) and afternoon (Interest rates and Credit Risk). Loads of graduate students, postdocs, faculty members and even some people from industry - exactly as it was meant to be. Hopefully we can keep up the numbers until the end of the program.
On the downside - as it appears we have to have one everyday - Tomas Bjork is stranded at Heathrow today because of a severe snow storm in England, so we had to cancel his first guest lecture originally scheduled for tomorrow morning.
