Academia vs Practice

I am at a practititioner oriented conference and a couple things spring to mind.

I) Practitioners oftn have no idea what academic life in a Finance B-school looks like. They have no idea about the tenure system and that research is key to sucess.

II) people have to be aware that if you are given 15mins to present, it is impossible to go over more than 10-12slides. People usually bring too much and run over time.

Corffee breaks are usually very useful to test new ideas to see i they make sense in the real world and for potntial sources of new data.

Looking forward to going back home!
