The MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity series is coming to Chicago on July 16 and 17, 2019 with a great line-up of industry speakers.


The goal of the series is very simple. We bring together industry professionals to share information, stories and ideas about our financial markets with the next generation – students and young professionals. With short, personal and insightful presentations, we educate, inspire and aim to attract these students to the financial markets.

Got a summer intern or young professional who would benefit from learning more about our industry? Send them our way.

Speakers for the Chicago series include Ali Brennan, Hillary Till, Patty Schuler, Larry Israel, John McPartland, David Doig, Todd Briggs, Jason Manumaleuna, Julie Armstrong, David Silverman, Jeff Carter, Donnie Roberts, Nancy Kaplan. Kathryn Trkla, Robert Khoury, Mike Nowak, Rumi Morales, Rob Hocking, Colleen Sullivan, Donna Heidkamp and Lory Kevin.

Additional speakers will be announced in JLN as the commitments are confirmed.

MarketsWiki Education is aimed at industry interns, college students, newer employees and others interested in pursuing a career or interest in the markets.

Registration Instructions

If you are enrolling a single person, or if you are enrolling several people to be paid with credit card in advance, please use the ‘individual’ ticket options for the dates you are attending; those tickets are prepaid right on this site. 

If you are enrolling a group from your company or school that will be invoiced after registration as a group, you may either select ‘individual’ or ‘group’ on the first page.  It is not necessary to create a ‘group’ on that first page unless you want to log in to access your registration later; any group may register under ‘individual’ on this first page.  But if you wish to be invoiced later, rather than pay in advance, please use the ‘corporate’ ticket options on the next page (scroll down past the individual tickets).  ‘Discounted corporate’ tickets are for groups of 10 or more only.  These corporate/school options will be invoiced after sign-up; see information on each ticket option.  If your corporate group will be attending only certain sessions and not the entire series, please enter the promotional code ‘CORPORATE’ for the dates you want, which will allow you to be invoiced after ordering.  

If you are enrolling a group, please enter individual attendee names and emails on each ticket, so that each person will be represented on the security list.

If you are from CME Group, you need to use a ‘promotional code’ specific to CME Group (check with your supervisor); you will need to select each session you will be attending individually.  These ticket options will be at the top of the ticket choices once you enter the promotional code.  Please do NOT register under ‘corporate’ for CME Group.

If you are from IIT, you need to use a ‘promotional code’ specific to IIT.  The ticket options available to you for Day 2 will be at the top of the ticket choices once you enter the promotional code.

Please email with any problems or questions.
