Whitman Students Tour NYMEX, Feb. 1

Select students in the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University will receive a frontline perspective of the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) on Feb. 1, 2008 during the David Greenberg Spring 2008 NYC Financial Field Trip. The students will also meet with Martin J. Whitman '49, founder and co-chief investment officer of Third Avenue Management.

NYMEX is the world's largest physical commodity futures exchange and the preeminent training forum for energy and precious metals. Students will observe trading floor operations, attend an informational seminar about the industry, and participate in a simulated trading experience on the trading floor.

The trip is sponsored this year by David Greenberg '86, the president of Sterling Commodities Corporation. The trip is free of charge to the students.
