Wall Street 101

Wall Street 101 (Update as of 3/23/2020)

Due to the Coronavirus situation, we made some changes to our plans for the Wall Street 101 Camps. We have extended the application deadline to May 1, 2020 and notification of acceptance will be sent out by May 7, 2020. Full tuition payment will be due by May 15, 2020. Our hope is that by May 30, Bentley University administration will be in a much better situation to determine whether it is safe to continue with our plan to host the sessions or to cancel them. If we cancel the sessions, all tuition and application fees will be refunded at the earliest possible time. Our decision may also come earlier if the Coronavirus situation worsens (we sincerely hope not). In the meantime, please be safe and we hope to see you at Bentley University for our Wall Street 101 Camp.

What is Wall Street 101?

Wall Street 101 is composed of 4 summer camps during the months of June and July, 2020, held at Bentley University’s world-class academic Trading Room in Waltham, MA. Each camp is a 5-day nonresidential program that provides a fun and interactive opportunity for rising high school juniors and seniors to learn about the global financial markets.Through simulated trading exercises, lectures on financial analysis, portfolio construction, data analytics, trading and risk management, presentations, and engagement with Wall Street professionals, students are introduced to the fascinating world of global finance and investing.

How will Wall Street 101 help me prepare for college?

Attending a pre-college Wall Street 101 camp has many benefits. Students will attend college-level lectures, interact with senior college admissions officers, enhance their personal portfolios through executive engagement, and elevate their professional portfolios with new investment ideas, presentation skills and business strategies. In addition, Wall Street 101 participants will connect with fellow high school students from across the globe, providing opportunities to gain strong global perspectives and friendship. The nonresidential program allows students to experience what it feels like to work at a Wall Street firm. They will interact with students from a diverse cultural background, gain self-respect and confidence, learn to form friendships, sharing meals with friends, and work in groups.

How will I apply my knowledge?

Students will work in small teams to utilize the financial technology of the Bentley Trading Room to learn about capital markets. Assignments are carefully developed that will allow you to apply your analytical mind, your leadership skills, your ability to work cohesively in a group, your interpersonal skills, and your communication skills to solve group tasks. You will learn about financial analysis, risk management, trading and investment process, and the link between macroeconomics and capital markets. Finally, through interactions with Wall Street professionals, students will be exposed to various careers on Wall Street.
