Business & Economics student trips to New York
The opportunities for Business and Economics students to enhance their perception and knowledge whilst on an educational trip to New York are virtually limitless. This is the home to the world’s largest stock exchange, located on Wall Street, a financial district that has become almost by-word for capitalist trade. The biggest names in banking and finance are found here.
Add to that the city’s cultural history as the first port for immigrants and the other face of New York’s business dynamic become clear; a diverse, eclectic entrepreneurial spirit and a seemingly unquenchable desire for advancement.
To ensure Business and Economics students gain maximum return from their educational trip to New York, Equity provides a range of carefully chosen excursions.
On a visit to the Museum of American Finance on Wall Street, students attend specialist workshops on subjects such as ‘Banking in America’ or ‘How to analyse Stock’, led by the Museum’s educational staff and industry professionals.
Other excursions include tours of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Madame Tussauds business workshops, and the world’s largest department store- Macy's.
