Students Visit the NYSE
On May 7, 2014, students taking courses in the Department of Economics and Business, and members of Economics and Business Club and the Pre-Business Club took a tour of the famous New York Stock Exchange. On their visit, students were provided an overview of the workings and history of the NYSE and were given opportunities to engage in discussions with members of the exchange who make markets and trades. Students thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to visit the exchange and were very appreciative of the opportunity to visit the famous NY and financial landmark.
On this trip they were led by faculty members Deborah Sanders and Amod Choudhary. The trip provides an opportunity for students to experience in-person concepts that are discussed in their courses at Lehman College.
