Twenty-two Business Fellows, four faculty members from the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business, and two staff members from the Student Professional Development Center traveled to New York City to visit various business firms and the New York Stock Exchange September 20-22 as part of an annual fall Business Fellows trip.
All students visited the New York Stock Exchange. Management, marketing and entrepreneurship students were hosted by Grand Central Partnership, Iconix, Omnicom, Forbes, and David Beheam Design. Finance, accounting and economic students visited Morgan Stanley, Blackrock, BNY Mellon, and Bloomberg.
