Helping Schools

Why are our courses right for your school?

This is more than test prep — STC's College courses provide real world experience that helps your students prepare for life beyond the classroom.

Did you know that new hires in the financial services industry spend 3 to 5 months preparing for the FINRA SIE and Series 7 exams? With the STC General Securities College Program, students enter the job market ready to pass with a high score and hit the ground running.

Traditional courses in economics and finance provide students with foundational theory, but providing practical insights into analyzing, selling, and trading financial products can be challenging.

With the STC General Securities College solution, students will use the same materials that are developed to train Wall Street professionals. The program builds on theoretical principles with real-world examples to foster a deeper understanding of the conceptual and analytical process used to evaluate investment policies and practices. Ultimately, the program:

  • Integrates with your current curriculum with several different options including one and three credit options.
  • Provides all instructor materials needed to deliver a semester long course.
  • Integrates well with school Finance Labs.
  • Opens doors to local and regional partnerships with Financial Services companies for student job placement.
