Please join the Confucius Institute for Global Finance as we welcome financial industry veteran Mr. Les Seff (MBA ’80) for The Evolution of NASDAQ, the first seminar of spring 2018. Mr. Seff will take us on a journey from the opening of the first electronic stock market in 1971, to the NASDAQ of today, concluding with a look into the future NASDAQ of the coming decades. Along the way, he will detail watershed moments including the 1987 crash, the dot-com era peak, and the brave new world of high frequency trading.
