OCU Students Enjoy Wall Street Experience Word

Students Tour NYC Financial District during Wall Street Experience

Ohio Christian University’s School of Business & Government students recently participated in the School’s annual “Wall Street Experience” visit to New York City.

They attended a Financial Crisis Tour and learned firsthand about the investment strategies that contributed to the economic collapse in 2008.  They toured famed architectural wonders including the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Hall, and The House of Morgan and learned about Wall Street’s history, the Dutch founding New York City, and New York City’s significance as the nation’s first capitol.

The students heard also from Mizuho Securities’ Executive Director of credit sales, observed bond traders in action, and met with the Managing Director of Wealth Management for Morgan Stanley.   A visit to the United Nations provided a lesson on the importance of international economic development.

Finally, Rev. B. J. Weber invited the group to his mid-town Manhattan home where he discussed the need for Christians to “show up and be available” to serve others in a persevering way.  The tour enabled the participants to converse with financial district professionals and to seek potential internships.

Each year Wall Street Experience touring students visit leaders at Wall Street businesses and investment firms and learn how to interact with them and discuss how investment theory and practice coincide.
