Rogers Family Trading Room

Connecting the Classroom and the Financial World

The Rogers Family Trading Room was established in spring 2001 as an advanced learning laboratory for students at all levels: undergraduate, MBA, Ph.D., and executive education.

The Trading Room replicates a real-world trading experience and functions as a classroom and a laboratory. Smeal was among the first business schools in the nation to invest in such a unique learning environment.

Televisions offer access to live coverage of CNBC, CNN, and other financial and news networks. Real-time tickers and stock boards surround you with important financial information. Each of the 54 workstations in the Trading Room is equipped with two monitors, a powerful computer, and the software needed for simulated trading, deal capture, settlement, analytics, pricing, portfolio management, derivatives pricing, and other finance-related challenges.
