Disappointed with lack of any real-world trading experience in his graduate-level Investments classes, Stock-Trak’s Founder and CEO, Mark T. Brookshire, wrote the first virtual trading application designed exclusively for college Investments classes shortly after graduating from Georgia Tech with a Master’s of Science in Management.
From the original concept of providing university students with the opportunity to simulate managing a portfolio of stocks, bonds and mutual funds, Stock-Trak’s product line continues to grow. We are constantly updating our curriculum library which now includes over 300 lessons each with built-in pop quizzes.
In 2019 we added a Personal Budgeting Game so now we can walk users through the basics of learning to live on a budget and save each month to learning to invest in the stock market.
Our family of financial education sites has grown to include nearly a dozen proprietary sites each serving a different audience and over 100 client branded sites:
