NU To Host 270 High School Students For Day Of Workshops, Stock Market Challenge
More than 270 local high school students will convene at Niagara University on March 4 to take part in workshops on business leadership and etiquette, and compete in a new stock market challenge that’s based on real-world results.
The seven participating high schools are members of the National Academy Foundation, an organization that develops industry-focused academic curricula and work-based experiential learning opportunities to prepare young people for college and career success.
Each of the high schools that will be on campus next week – Barker, Clarence, Lake Shore, Lancaster, Lewiston-Porter, North Tonawanda, and Orchard Park – maintains an NAF Academy of Finance. The academies connect students with professionals working in the areas of financial services and personal finance, and offer courses on banking and credit, financial planning, global finance, securities, insurance, accounting, and economics.
This marks the second time that Niagara University has held the day-long program.
