Eagles on Wall Street
This program is now full for May 2024! Please be on the lookout for applications to open in the fall for our May 2025 trip.
About the Program:
Through Eagles on Wall Street, Parker College students are able to interact and network with associates, analysts, managers, and executives of some of the most prestigious firms in the financial system, learning about different divisions of the companies, the careers of the hosts and speakers, internship and job prospects, and gain career advice from those who have succeeded in NYC. Students acquire first-hand knowledge of what it is like working and living in The Big Apple as they “commute” to different firms during rush hour, just like NYC locals.
