The Wasmer, Schroeder, & Company Trading room

The Wasmer, Schroeder, & Company portfolio trading room, located in Lutgert Hall 1205 in the Lutgert College of Business, is a state-of-the-art finance, trading, and research laboratory. The room features 11 Bloomberg terminals at dedicated PCs, four 80-inch LCD monitors to display lecture and presentation content, and a streaming stock ticker. In addition, the room is equipped with video/audio capture technology, with a motion-sensing video camera and two microphone sound bars. The trading room is primarily used as a finance research lab for undergraduate finance majors and MBA students. In addition, this room provides a classroom meeting space for the Eagle Fund and the Financial Policy course, the capstone finance course in the LCOB finance major. The trading room is also used for special events, such as executive committee meetings.


The trading room and this program itself wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors. We would like to thank Wasmer, Schroeder & Company, and the CFA Institute for their continued support. Click the links below to learn more:
