YSU student rings closing bell at NASDAQ
Kevin Barron, senior finance student at Youngstown State University, was selected as one of 25 students to participate in the closing bell ceremony at NASDAQ headquarters in Times Square in New York.
“It was an incredible experience,” Barron said. “The energy and excitement was great. This was an opportunity that very few people ever get.”
Thirteen students in the YSU Williamson College of Business Administration Student Investment Fund recently traveled to New York to attend the Quinnipiac Global Asset Management Education III Forum. The forum attracted 1,000 students from 44 states and 33 countries, representing 118 universities, to hear 120 speakers over two and a half days. The YSU students entered the optional conference portfolio competition and, based on this entry, Kevin Barron took part in closing ceremonies along with 24 students selected from other schools.
