Can you imagine the value of starting to invest in the stock market while still in high school?
A new collaboration between The New York Institute of Finance (NYIF) and Westcoast Connection will prepare high school students to do just that with the Wall Street Stock Market & Investment Experience. This unparalleled financial educational experience is offered for 7 or 14 days this July and there is also a commuter option for local New York City residents who don’t require accommodations.
Participants will learn the ins and outs of the financial sector including trading, wealth management, mergers and acquisitions, hedge funds, private equity, IPO’s and understanding financial statements. Plenty of inspiration and insights will be shared through networking with prominent guest speakers, engaging sessions with top industry professionals, and collaborative projects. Exciting touring and city highlights are also included to create the perfect balance for teens who want a rewarding experience without missing out on some summer fun too!
As the next generation of finance industry professionals – leave NYC with lifelong friendships, fond memories and practical knowledge of the career choices available in finance. Limited spots are available.
