Lipscomb University’s College of Business Financial Markets Lab Ticker is 36 feet long and wraps the outside of the room. The lab equips students with the tools such as Bloomberg to help them enter the workforce successfully. In addition to the learning advantages, the lab helps the college engage with local Nashville business experts.
Here is what two of Lipscomb’s key faculty members had to say about the room opening:
“This Financial Markets Lab will give our students real-time information about what is happening around the world in the markets. It gives them the ability to communicate and learn in very powerful ways,” said Jeff Jewell, professor of business administration.
“The Financial Markets Lab is designed to give our students the feel of what a real Wall Street trading floor is like,” said Brian Masterson, assistant professor of accounting and chair of Lipscomb’s Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics
