If you have a passion for business and investing, or may be considering a career on Wall Street, this summer institute is for you!

During this weeklong, residential experience, you will get a first-class introduction to business and investing. Susquehanna University is among the top 5% of business programs worldwide—and one of a handful of residential liberal arts colleges—to have earned AACSB accreditation, a marker of excellence. Other AACSB schools include Harvard Business School and the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. This means that you will learn from the best!

You will learn to use one of the 12 Bloomberg terminals in our investment laboratory. They are rarely available to high school students (or even college undergraduates) to use in conducting market research.

Participating in Wall Street Susquehanna will give you a unique opportunity to build your skills and improve your résumé.
