Visit to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)
On October 10, Professor Mine Doyran-adviser to ALPFA-led a team of students to the NY Stock Exchange on a field trip to learn about the securities industry.
Students and faculty member visited the trading floor and had informal discussions with traders. Students were very appreciative of the this unique opportunity which gave them a first-hand account of the world of public investment and trading.
Wall Street Summer Exchange Program
The Department of Economics and Business congratulates and is very proud of four of our students -- Diana Camejo, Alba Cela, Jie Lei, and Leslie Morones. They were accepted and completed the prestigious Wall Street Summer Exchange Program this past summer. This is “a career development program designed to augment the summer internship work experience of select qualified students who are between their junior and senior years of college and who are employed in the New York metropolitan area.” (Source: http://www.fwa.org/committee/wse.htm). Ms. Camejo and Cela were summer interns at New York Life while Ms. Lei interned at Institute of Play and Ms. Morones at American Express. They participated in a series of workshops where they learned job search skills (professionalism, resumé-writing, interview techniques etc.) and to think strategically about their career development and choices. We wish them continued success and hope other students will experience similar successes.
The Wall Street Summer Exchange Program is sponsored by Financial Women's Association.
