Bay Street Deconstructed® is an exciting new educational program for Grade 10 girls and boys described by The Toronto Star as a workshop to “fuel youth’s interest in the financial industry”.
With a differentiated approach of fun and interactive experiential learning, Bay Street Deconstructed® focuses on the areas of personal and commercial banking, corporate and investment banking, sales and trading, equity research, economics, insurance, investment management (wealth and asset), and operations.
Our innovative program structure was developed by a team of professionals and designed to address gaps in current high school courses and existing industry initiatives with respect to financial services career education.
“Our students applied their critical thinking in competitive and collaberative challenges that sparked ongoing conversationss in theclassroom throughout the year. Students had fun during the day and some teachers wanted to make the program a mandatory part of the Grade 10 curriculum.”
