City Trek: New York City
Posted 12.7.15MSM-Finance students travel to New York City to visit the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Bloomberg and EY.
Sixteen MSM-Finance students participated in a city trek to New York City this fall to visit EY, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Bloomberg.
While in New York, students participated in a Bloomberg terminal training session and building tour as well as an historical tour of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York building.
At EY, students heard a company overview by Transaction Advisory Services and participated in a discussion with a partner, two senior managers and two recently hired staff, including MSM-Finance 2015 graduate, Marcus Pullman.
- give students an internal glimpse of American business operations
- offer students the opportunity to network with peers and potential employers for future jobs and internship opportunities
Because Weatherhead wants its students to make the most out of these trips, MSM-Finance students undergo a rigorous screening process in order to be eligible for city treks. Students must participate in a minimum of three Career Management Office sponsored events, cover letter and resume consultations, and an hour-long mock interview in order to prepare for and qualify to attend the city trek. This preparation ensures that students present their best selves to the companies visited.
Each trek accommodates between 15 and 20 students. New York City is the first of three trips planned this academic year. The MSM-Finance program will also offer trips to Chicago and Cleveland.
