Investing in Our Future: Center for Securities Trading and Business Analytics
Trading Room Expansion
State-of-the-Art Facility Gets Additional Space
The Stillman School of Business is expanding its trading room and relaunching as the Center for Securities Trading and Business Analytics to accommodate the needs of students now and in the future.
Since 2004, Stillman students have combined classroom concepts with real-world practice, and the innovative financial trading room replicates a Wall Street experience. Students studying in finance classes, investing in the Student-Managed Investment Fund or competing on the CFA Institute Research Challenge Team have fully leveraged the room and its resident Bloomberg terminals. In fact, trading room usage has become so popular, there is now a need for additional space.
This project will expand the trading room area by 50 percent, resulting in 14 dedicated terminal locations and additional tables for both small group work and instruction. Total room capacity in the new space will accommodate 30 students. In addition, new video monitors will enhance the teaching and learning experience utilizing state-of-the-art technology.
- Renovation increases the overall capacity for individual and group work
- Increased number of desktop terminals allows more students the opportunity for project time
- New video monitors enhance the teaching and learning experience
- Project also expands faculty library space by closing the trading room's partially open ceiling
