OCU Business Students Visit the New York Stock Exchange

A group of Ohio Christian University (OCU) Business and Government students visited Wall Street, Bloomberg Headquarters, the United Nations, and Mizuho Securities this fall. Students attended a Financial Crisis Tour where they learned firsthand what happens inside the New York Stock Exchange. The tour was led by Wall Street veterans who explained the difference between a CDO and a CDS, investment strategies which they said contributed to the economic collapse in 2008. Students also saw the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Hall, The House of Morgan, and other famed architectural wonders.

“As a professor and one of the leaders of the Wall Street Experience I can say that it is amazing to see our students grow as they are exposed to business in the big city. Our students are privileged to get to meet people who work in New York for organizations like Bloomberg, Wall Street, the United Nations, and many others. They are struck with the realization that these workers are people ‘just like us’ who have boldly taken the steps necessary to go to work for these well-known and respected companies. OCU students have what it takes to fill these same positions. After our New York visits, our students return home able to consider a much bigger world in which they may want to work.”

- Dale Lear, Program Director - Business

Bloomberg Financial provided OCU students with a tour of their headquarters, resources to seek employment with Bloomberg, and a company briefing. In addition, students visited Mizuho Security’s bond trading floor and heard from a bond trader.

OCU Student Daniel Santoj said, "The New York trip was an exciting time spent with peers and staff. We gained some influential knowledge of the history of WallStreet and visited amazing businesses such as one of my personal favorites; Bloomberg!"
