Courses

Integrating the Trading Room resources into the graduate and undergraduate curricula is the single most important goal of the Hughey Center. Over the past three years, we have tripled the number of courses integrating the facility. Currently, the Trading Room is integrated into 48 graduate and undergraduate courses as both a teaching and research center.

Some of these courses include as many as 26 sections per semester, exposing more than 800 students per course to the financial technologies that they will use as working professionals. Provided below is a brief description of how the Trading Room is used in a cross-section of graduate and undergraduate courses.
