Strode's College Business, Economics and IT students had the opportunity to visit the bustling Economic and Business suburb of New York for a five-day educational trip over the Easter period. This annual trip gave the students the opportunity to take part in an exciting programme of educational visits and to soak up the different cultures that New York has to offer.
‘The Big Apple,’ otherwise known as New York, is one of the global leaders in terms of business and finance. It is a bustling, cosmopolitan metropolis, full of culture and atmosphere and is a world business capital.
The students visited the Bank of American Finance and took part in a few workshops about ‘self-budgeting’ and ‘economic data of household spending’.
They also took the opportunity to attend a presentation at the world famous Macey’s and learn about the business function of the store and were given a complimentary discount card spend in the store for a few hours.
New York is a fantastic location for introducing students to the buzz of the modern business world. Students were able to get up-close and personal with a wide range of organisations across a number of business sectors, which helped to deepen their understanding of the world of international business.
And of course, no visit to New York is complete without visiting some of the famous landmarks, they went to the top of the Empire State Building, saw the Statue of Liberty and visited the 9/11 memorial as well as of course, Times Square and the Jersey Gardens Outlet Centre for any last minute present buying.
Students had a fantastic time and said it was a trip full of lasting memories.
