Financial Market Lab Re-Opens for Business
Canisius now has bigger and better assets in the Nelson D. ’67 Civello Family Financial Markets Lab (FML). The lab recently underwent a $400,000 expansion and renovation project that increased the size of the FML to 1,000 square feet and added many of the same tools of the trade used on Wall Street. A four-color ticker display provides news headlines and current stock and index prices. Four LCD panels connect to live market broadcasts or can be used by faculty to display teaching materials. The FML also houses Smart Board technology and 30 student computer stations.
The showpiece of the Financial Markets Lab is the Bloomberg terminal. Used by professionals throughout the industry, the Bloomberg system provides live market data and news information, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and stores information on virtually every public and private company.
The Financial Markets Lab supports the college’s business programs, particularly economics and finance.
