Finance students choose a college for a variety of reasons. Of primary concern is the school’s ability to prepare them for a future career on Wall Street. To this end, various business schools are enhancing their curriculum by building finance labs to prepare students. These facilities feature the latest technology — specifically digital signage and LED Tickers — to attract prospective students, while simulating today’s rapidly changing market to prepare students for Wall Street.
