									NYU Stern School of Business, The Langone Professional Development Program, Fall 2006 Target Area: Investment Banking
The following are tasks that we recommend you to do in addition to the requirements set by the Langone Professional Development Program. The ones highlighted in green are “must do” and the ones highlighted in yellow are “recommended”, in our view. Please note that in order to be successful, you need to set aside a tremendous amount of time to prepare and network through out the entire process, which means from now until the end of the year.
