You have the new Trading Room and the fancy digital stock ticker but now what do you do with the students? A lot of it will center around the design of your curriculum and simulation programs you will use, but live quotes, news, and research is always a key must have. So what are your options?
We are currently surveying the approximately 225 labs across North America to find out what they are using (if you haven’t filled out our short questionnaire and you have a finance lab – please contribute), so stay tuned for some market analysis later this year. In the mean time here are some links to some popular names we hear frequently.
- Bloomberg - probably the most recognizable brand name in the industry but it does come at a greater annual cost than some of the other products.
- Capital IQ - more than 500 universities worldwide use Capital IQ for faculty research, classroom instruction, and business school accreditation.
- FactSet – provides professors and students’ hands-on access to the same tools used by global investment professionals to monitor global markets, equities, and fixed income assets in a single interface.
- Telemet – offers the most generous academic package. For one flat fee they will provide unlimited use within the finance lab and for faculty of their market data, news, investment research, economic data, and portfolio analytics. They also provide access to an Interactive Curriculum and allow students to customize views and save them to USB thumb drives so they can access their personalized information from any workstation.

Other providers we hear referenced but don’t see them at industry shows and we haven’t been able to find information about specific academic programs on their website are Reuters and William O’Neil.
If you have an experience with one of the above providers that you would like to share with other schools we would encourage you to jump into the group discussion on Linkedin and contribute.

During the month of September we will be offering some educational webinars on Utilizing Mobile Phone, Social Media, and Digital Display Technologies to Recognize Donors
Visitors today want to be “wowed”. While they enjoy traditional signage using etched glass, wood, and bronze, users are looking for an interactive experience where they can browse through donors, sort by categories, and instantly search for individuals.
This session will introduce attendees to the latest technology trends and how these new mediums can be used to create a unique experience for donors and visitors. The conversation will center around utilizing touch enabled LCD displays to create an interactive experience that will allow healthcare providers and universities to recognize 1000′s of donors on a single screen that is searchable and utilizes media (photos and videos) to tell a story.
We will also take the conversation beyond the display to show how these large format displays inside the facility act as “sign posts” to allow visitors to scan content and take it with them on their mobile phones. From a smartphone the user can share the message via twitter and Facebook with their social community extending the reach from the display in the hallway around the world within seconds.
Attendees will be exposed to real world examples of the technology and learn how inexpensive it is to utilize this technology in their campaigns.
We have scheduled 4 different dates – please select the date and time that is most convenient with your schedule.
Everyone is welcome from architects to end users, AV integrators to Traditional Donorwall providers.
We will also be presenting this topic live at ADRP in New Orleans on Tuesday Sept 13th at 4pm in session 8D. If you are planning to attend the conference please stop by and say hello.
