4th Annual Education series will stop in four cities in 2016

Do you want to help the next generation?

The 4th Annual MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity series is coming to five cities in 2016, including Chicago on July 12th, 14th and 15th, New York on July 19th and London, Paris and Frankfurt in late October. Interns, new employees and anyone interested in learning more about the past, as well as present opportunities and careers in the capital and derivatives markets should attend. Registration for the Chicago and New York events is now open.

The goal of the series is very simple. We bring together industry professionals to share information, stories and ideas about our financial markets with the next generation – students and young professionals. With short, personal and insightful presentations, we educate, inspire and aim to attract these students to the financial markets.

Got a summer intern or young professional who would benefit from learning more about our industry? Send them our way.
