Strategic Finance Laboratory
Thanks to our loyal alumni and friends, MSU business students have the opportunity to learn in a real-world trading atmosphere right in McCool Hall.
The Strategic Finance Laboratory at McCool Hall is an advanced learning environment designed to integrate investment education, financial research, and professional practice. Replicating a real-world trading experience, this state of the art facility functions as both classroom and a laboratory which brings the excitement of a Wall Street brokerage house to Mississippi State University.
The trading room is designed to provide students with a competitive edge as the obtain jobs in the investments industry or sit for professional certification exams. This multi-disciplinary facility will also play a role in student recruiting, industry relations, and the interactions between alumni and students.
The Strategic Finance Laboratory offers 21 student terminals and the ability for interactive professor/student learning in a simulated trading floor environment. The room is complete with a 24-foot stock ticker and ten 51-inch televisions which provide live coverage of the financial markets and world news.
