Do you have big city aspirations after graduation? Are you wishing for a chance at Wall Street, the financial capital of the world? If so, consider joining us for the 2011 New York Trek. The Trek takes place during the week of September 21-25 and includes visits with key alumni in the financial, investment industry in New York. Unlike other Treks (Seattle, Portland or Bay Areas) the NYC Trek is by application only to maintain the highest caliber of participation and quality of candidates.
Fee: $500. Note: A deposit of $100 is due upon approval of application, remaining balance is due at the June.
The fee includes: Hotel accommodations for four nights, roundtrip airfare and two evening networking socials. You will be responsible for incidentals throughout the trip.
For more information and for your application, contact the GAMP office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 313-4048.
Andrew Rieder of the Alumni Association shot the video from last week’s New York Trek from the New York Stock Exchange. Among the various stops along the tour, the eight selected Gonzaga students were able to see first hand the workings of the NYSE.
Interested in attending the NYC Trek next year? Space is limited and application are made available in the Spring. If you don’t want to wait until then for an eye-opening Trek experience, consider joining us for the Portland (Jan, 5th) and Seattle (Jan. 7-8) Treks this winter. Be on the look out for registration announcements!
Several Gonzaga students are in New York this week for the Annual GAMP New York Trek. Today the students had an opportunity to visit several high profile financial institutions in New York including the New York Stock Exchange, Deutsche Bank and the J.P. Morgan Chase headquarters. Students have the chance to sit down with several high ranking officers from these organizations and ask key questions about careers in the financial industry. Here’s a great photo of our students in front of the famous Wall Street Bull in the financial district.
