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-trained 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, portfolio management presentations and/or macroeconomic simulations. Students attending courses on our beautiful campus will gain hands-on experience in our world-class trading room and attend off-campus presentations at firms in the Boston area.
