The program will be housed at the “Ferris Goldsmith-Trading Floor” where Georgia Tech teaches trading classes. This facility simulates a real Wall Street trading floor environment.
The primary instructor is Dr. Barry Marchman. In addition to being a member of the Fayette County Board of Education, Dr. Marchman has been teaching finance classes at Georgia Tech since 2007. Dr. Jonathan Clarke, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs, will also be leading part of the program.
Members are encouraged to consider this opportunity for their rising high school junior and seniors. In addition, there is opportunity for members to sponsor scholarships for students who, without support, may not be able to participate in the class.
