Wall Street 101 is a competitive experiential learning program for rising high school juniors and seniors interested in global finance and investing, including stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities. The sessions, designed in an age-appropriate manner, introduce students to the art and science of trading, investing, and managing a portfolio. In small classes led by Bentley faculty with industry experience, students participate in lectures, case analyses, interactive trading simulations and presentations by Wall Street professionals.
All courses integrate industry-standard software with exercises and assignments to develop capital markets knowledge. In addition to class time, students work in teams to prepare stock pitches, analyze investment strategies and participate in macroeconomic simulations. Students attending courses on our beautiful campus will gain hands-on experience on industry-standard databases such as Bloomberg, FactSet, and the Financial Trading System in our world-class trading room.
