The Howard L. Hawks Hall designed byRobert A.m. Stern Architects features an Ag Econ Ticker above the Trade Room. The Trade Room is a new high-tech space for students. The Lab is a gateway for students to experience what it is like to work in the finance industry where students trade stocks and commodities as part of a simulated computerized platform.
In addition to having a LED stock ticker attracting attention to the classroom, the Trade Room includes 12 Bloomberg terminals for students to analyze financial data, research, and news.
Finance students on the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) track also benefit from using the Trade Room for a two semester practicum in which they manage the Cornhusker Fund. Gifted to the college in the mid-80s, the fund allows students to learn the intricacies of managing a real life portfolio.
