The Wall Street Summer Program.

 

The Wall Street Program

Note: This program is full for Summer 2018. Please apply again in early May 2019.

The financial markets have far-reaching influence, but  how do the day-to-day operations of Wall Street impact our economy?  Answer those questions by spending your summer behind-the-scenes at securities firms, the New York Stock Exchange, and the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Learn about the relationships between the financial system and local, national, and global economies. Study the institutions and operations of financial markets, and their roles in channeling credit and financing new investments. Discuss the financial history and ethical dimensions of Wall Street and its relation to macroeconomic policy.

Drew’s distinguished faculty will introduce you to guest speakers from the finance industry and government regulatory agencies, as well as institutional investors, shareholder activists, academics and nonprofit executives.
