The mission of the center is to extend the educational goals of Bentley University through innovative classroom pedagogy, cutting-edge financial research, and real-world applications.
Our mission is translated into three broad strategies:
- To integrate the Trading Room into the graduate and undergraduate curricula in an effort to enhance student learning, professional development and global success
- To create a positive, collegial, and collaborative environment that is supportive of faculty and student research activities
- To strengthen external relations with the global business community
The center is dedicated to providing world-class education through the integration of the multi-million dollar Trading Room. Supporting more than 50 graduate and undergraduate courses, and providing faculty, students and staff with an unrivaled collection of financial technologies valued at more than $3.5 million in annual licensing fees, the Hughey Center serves as a model for other colleges and universities around the globe.
