[NYC] 2014 Spring Executive Conference (hosted by Microsoft)


Student executives meeting in a conference room

On Friday, May 30, 2014, the young NYC executives gathered at Microsoft’s Time Square offices for the 2014 Spring Executive Conference. Students shared their achievements from the year, reflected on their VEI experience, heard from guest speakers, and networked with one another.

One of the main highlights of the day included the Fiscal Year Round Up and Firm Financial Roll Call. Executives representing their firms stood in front of their peers to announce their firms’ end-of-year financials: Total Revenue, Total Expenses, Profit and Loss, Cash in the Bank, Total Liabilities and Total Outstanding Accounts Receivable.
