NYC Field Trips

As a foundation for educating students about careers in financial services, the Ballentine Investment Institute sponsors annual trips to the stock and futures exchanges and brokerage and investment banking firms in New York City.  At the Institute’s request, host firms often present customized seminars and offer access to the exchange floor, where our students gain an invaluable up-close look at floor operations. Students are also given the opportunity to speak with financial managers and analysts and learn more about the industry, in addition to their participation in a simulated trading experience.

These trips are an excellent opportunity for you to expand the financial knowledge you have gained, helping to bridge “book knowledge” with the reality of how markets work.
