Williams School's NY Road Trip

Thirty students from Washington and Lee’s Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics, along with members of the faculty and representatives of W&L’s Career Services, descended on New York City last week to get a sense of what might await them after graduation.

The Williams School Annual Investments Trip allows students to observe and talk with individuals engaged in the functions of financial markets and to explore the potential in advertising and marketing. Twenty students headed to Wall Street, 10 to Madison Avenue.

The Wall Street group visited and heard presentations from Bloomberg, Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan Chase, Lincoln International, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and the New York Stock Exchange.
