The primary objective of the Lerner College Trading Center is to increase the quality of the academic experience within the Lerner College by allowing our students to experience real time hands-on professional applications of the industry, and empowering our faculty with high-tech teaching tools. This discovery-based learning facility allows the Lerner College to stay abreast of the fast-paced world of financial markets. We offer our students a real world experience that provides them with a unique skill set. Students in Finance, Economics, HRIM, Accounting, MIS, and other classes use the center to put theory into practice. Workshops teach students the basics of working with sophisticated financial software. Professional training courses and executive education classes are also conducted in the center. When the trading center is not used for classes and workshops, it is available for students to complete research and assignments.
The Lerner College Trading Center is a 2,200 square foot educational trading facility designed to replicate the trading floors in investment banks, brokerage houses, and hedge funds on Wall Street. We incorporate the same computer hardware, software, networks, and market data feeds that are found in every financial institution throughout the world. The center contains sixteen classroom workstations, four research room workstations, an instructor podium, and real-time feeds to two tickers and four LCD displays.
