Thanks to BancFirst endowed lectureship, School of Business takes an educational trip to New York City every year. BancFirst endowed lectureship pays for travel and boarding. The trip goes to the financial district, New York Stock Exchange and Bloomberg building.
In order to be eligible for the trip, the student must be Business or Accounting Undergraduate or MBA student. In addition, the student should have already taken or be currently enrolled in Investment or Portfolio I class. We started these trips in 2012. We take this trip in May right after final exam in spring semester. In our trips in 2012 and 2013 we visited New York Stock Exchange, mutual funds, Banks and financial advising companies.
Due to limited resources we can only take selected students on this trip. The students will be selected based on their GPA, essay scores and interview. Dr. Qayyum (firstname.lastname@example.org) supervises and arranges these trips.
