Courtesy of a gift from a locally based financial advisory firm, students enrolled in business majors at Pennsylvania College of Technology have access to Barron’s Digital subscriptions, as well as a variety of resources provided through an experiential learning initiative offered by the Barron’s in Education Program from Dow Jones.

Hudock Capital Group is providing a two-year gift to Penn College to be licensed for the program. Also benefiting from the program are business faculty at the college.

Among the benefits derived are customized workshops, an invitation for up to 25 students to visit Barron’s Dow Jones Headquarters in Manhattan and tour the newsrooms for Barron’s/Wall Street Journal and MarketWatch, and the opportunity to have students recognized as Dow Jones/Barron’s Student Ambassadors.

Ambassadors will be trained as on-campus experts and have direct communication with the head of financial education at Dow Jones and team members.

“We are so pleased to bring the Barron's in Education Program to Pennsylvania College of Technology," said Joe Lanza, director of financial education at Dow Jones Barron’s Group.

Also featured in the program are guest speakers and webinars from Dow Jones, Barron’s “Weekly Review” summary for business faculty, and connection of Penn College Career Services with Dow Jones corporate recruitment teams for internship and job opportunities.

“The generous gift provided by Hudock Capital Group will provide our students and faculty with access to the business and financial resources available to other top leading business schools in the country,” said Lisa Andrus, dean of the school of business and hospitality. “We are excited to offer the diverse opportunities within the Barron’s in Education program to our students as one more way they can prepare themselves for the competitive job market.”

“We are pleased to support the students and faculty at Penn College,” expressed Barbara Hudock, chief executive officer and founding partner of Hudock Capital Group. “We share Penn College’s commitment to excellence and its dedication to our community’s next generation of business leaders. At Hudock Capital, we are passionate about making a positive and profound difference in the communities we serve. We are proud to partner with Penn College to do just that.”
