Financial Trading Lab

This state of the art computer laboratory, located on the second floor of the University Center, provides students the opportunity to learn how to trade in stocks and bonds and study financial market trends, the performance of companies, and national economies.  Continuously fed stock quotes and other financial information and computers equipped with industry standard software will enable students to study finance in a setting that mimics a Wall Street stock broker's office.

The lab has 24 student stations and one faculty station.  Data boards, 24 hour news channel on television, and a continuously running ticker tape creates the drama and exciting atmosphere typical of real world stock markets.

The lab complements the Superior Fund and provides a superior learning experience comparable to anywhere in the world.

The Trading Lab when not used by students is available to the local business and educational community for instructional and training purposes.  Please contact bizdean@nmu.edu for more information.
