Wall Street West Financial Lab
In 2008 a classroom in the McGowan Center was renovated into a real-time business lab. Complete with a constant stock ticker, 20 new computers, and up-to-date financial software; the new business lab helps students get the knowledge they need for the financial workforce. Also, the high-tech lab works hand-in-hand with the student-run portfolio, the Pacer Investment Fund. The Pacer Investment Fund provides students with a solid knowledge of dealing with a stock portfolio. Students deal with actual money from investors and track their stocks. Along with handling real money, business students also have to observe the performance of the investor’s stock.
