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.
