College of Business and Economics, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

Hybrid Class, Spring 2021

The focus of the course will be to gain a significant understanding of the financial industry of securities and investments, with an emphasis on trading, market, and the operational side (“behind the scenes”) of the industry.  The ultimate goal will be for students to be trained and educated on the materials tested in the Securities Industry Exam (SIE).  This exam is a testing mechanism through FINRA by which individuals gain the approval to work with investments in various functions.  FINRA is the Financial Institution Regulatory Authority that governs much of the financial markets and investment practices, sales and operations.  Such roles (“jobs”) where this would be necessary to complete would include, but not be limited to, financial advisor/planner; investment analyst; compliance/regulatory officer; mutual fund or investment company product wholesaler; trader of stocks, bonds, and/or options; wealth manager/advisor; and variable insurance/annuity product representative.
