Capital One Financial, Information Based Strategy

Speakers: Andrew Van Ryzin and Ryan Paavola

Abstract Today, Capital One is the 6th largest bank in the United States, with one of the most recognizable brands in the world. Unlike many of its peers however, it was founded only 25 years ago as the credit card arm of a small Virginia Bank. Capital One has experienced this unprecedented growth due its use of Information Based Strategy where large amounts of customer data is used to tailor products and drive business decision making. This strategy is totally dependent on the intellect of our analysts and their ability to solve complex problems using their mathematical and data analysis skills.

In our info session we’d like to tell you what it’s like to work at Capital One, how we got where we are today and what it takes to get a job here. We’ll also be covering some aspects of interviewing at finance and consulting companies as well as answering any questions you have about the work world after college.
Free Pizza will be served.

When: Thursday, April 11, 4:35 p.m.
Where: Room 139 Van Vleck.
