Finance Meets High Tech

Finance Center

Supporting a wide variety of learning opportunities requires state-of-the-art technology and a full range of research and analytical tools. Twelve workstations (including one instructor station) are available in the Finance Center for student use. Each workstation is powered by HP blade workstation technology and drives a 24-inch widescreen monitor (workstations that feature the Bloomberg application have two 24-inch monitors). These tools can also be used for teaching on a larger scale as many resources can be redirected to the 65-seat lecture room adjacent to the Finance Center.
