Wall Street on West Peachtree
Do you think you would have had a better start in life if you had just known a little bit more about money and investing? Do you think your students could benefit from a week of financial training at Georgia Tech’s Sheller College of Business?
Georgia Tech is offering “Wall Street on West Peachtree” again this year to 160 students. This is a one-week class offered 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday through Friday. We currently have offerings every week of June 2015. The overall goal of this program is to provide the high school students with a portfolio of basic money management and investing tools that will equip them to make strong financial decisions and achieve long-term financial success.
The program will be housed at the “Ferris Goldsmith-Trading Floor” where we teach our trading classes. This facility simulates a real Wall Street trading floor environment. The primary instructor is Dr. Barry Marchman. Dr. Marchman has been teaching finance classes at Georgia Tech since 2007.
The program is geared towards rising juniors and seniors, but any high school student can participate. Please pass this information on to your students and to everyone you know who may be interested. Registration is first come, first served
