NEW YORK, April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Training The Street (TTS), a leading corporate training provider for Wall Street firms and top business schools, today announced it will now offer a public course in the Principals of Capital Markets. The five-day course is available to banking and financial professionals seeking an understanding of the main theories and relationships that drive the capital markets. Bob Wieczorek, head of TTS's asset management and capital markets practice group, will lead the course from May 4–8 at TTS's New York City offices, with future dates and locations to be announced.
Through a hands-on instructor led curriculum, which includes interactive case studies using actual market data, participants will gain a thorough understanding of market dynamics by learning to analyze market conditions and form educated views to formulate future expectations. The learning environment is highly interactive and enhanced by the live simulations replicating both electronic and live "open pit" trading of an array of asset classes.
The Principles in Capital Markets public course series comes following the renowned success of TTS's public courses on financial modeling and valuations and its private programing offered to banks, investment firms, and law firms.
