Open House

Spend the morning meeting faculty, students and see our beautiful 125 acre campus! Monday, January 18 9:00am – 12:00pm

Wall Street and the Business World 101

This course will be an opportunity for students to learn about the financial industry, particularly Wall Street and the Stock Market, as well as other financial fields. Through real-world simulations and hands on exercises, students will delve into the stock market and explore its various tenets. Participation in industry analysis, creating their own portfolio, and simulating trading sessions would be the crux of the Winterim. Students will develop a formal presentation that explains their reasons for investment selections, including a detailed financial analysis of at least one Fortune 500 Company. The Winterim will also include a trip to NYC and a possible tour of the trading floor. Experts from the financial/business industry will also be providing lectures and discussions. We will spend a few days discussing what it takes to open up and run a small business from scratch. Participants will be exposed to the small business world within Litchfield County and learn the basics of being a small business owner.
