Our Custom-Built Wall Street Trading Room
Saint Joseph’s University has recently established a tailor-made trading room where students experience firsthand exposure to financial concepts such as portfolio construction, risk management, and financial engineering. This facility—the newest technological addition to Mandeville Hall and the first of its kind in the Philadelphia region—is just another example of how real-time experiential learning is incorporated into the classroom.
The room’s electronic ticker and LCD Panels displays ongoing, real-time market activity and stock prices, while a tri-color board provides students with current financial information and graphics. The trading room at Saint Joseph’s, designed by Rise Trans-Lux Corporation, gives students the opportunity to apply and practice financial analysis and risk management skills before entering the high-tech business arena. Students use both current and historical information in the classroom, which is the same information used by portfolio managers in their day-to-day business.
When graduates of Saint Joseph’s University become practitioners, they can immediately use their experiences from the campus trading room in their professional careers. This technology ensures an effortless transition between the academic world and the professional world.
