What excited Norman Valencia about joining CMC? A golden opportunity.
As a new tenure-track assistant professor of Spanish and Portuguese in the Modern Languages Department, Valencia will be working on ways to develop a Portuguese program. An estimated 230 million people speak Portuguese around the world, he told the Claremont Independent this year, “making it a truly global language.”
The word "intensive" has taken on new meaning for a group of highly motivated CMC students who were enrolled this month in FIN 300: Seminar in Applied Finance, a course in the Masters Program in Finance at CMC.
The three-week course (which ended August 30) offered through CMC’s Robert Day School of Economics and Finance, differs from other classes in that it includes a team-building retreat in Big Bear and a networking trip to the Bay area.
Lee Skinner, Associate Professor of Spanish, and Ronald Riggio, Henry R.
