Eagles on Wall Street Class Visits New York City
OC’s Eagles on Wall Street class experienced the Big Apple during Spring Break as part of OC’s Topics in Finance course.
“This trip is a great way to learn about the world’s leading financial markets firsthand,” Associate Professor of Business Jody Jones said.
The 15 OC students attended the Global Asset Management Education Forum, interacted with Wall Street leaders and learned best practices in investment management.
Students also visited the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the Bloomberg offices, the World Trade Center, the Museum of Finance, the New York Federal Reserve and the Broadway debut of “Aladdin.”
OC students have attended the GAME Forum the last eight years, but this is the first time a group has attended for class credit.
Next year, OC’s International Finance class will travel to Washington, D.C., for a similar experience.
