In March 2000 the Zicklin School opened the Subotnick Financial Services Center, an exciting state-of-the-art instructional facility that integrates hands-on financial services practice into the business curriculum. The Subotnick Center is the only business school resource of its kind in New York and one of a handful of comparable facilities at top educational institutions nationwide. Its centerpiece is the Bert W. and Sandra Wasserman Trading Floor, a fully equipped, simulated trading environment featuring 42 high-end networked computer workstations, continuous live data feeds, real-time market quotes, and computerized trading models. Actual market technology is used to teach students about markets and financial services-valuable experience for graduates seeking leading positions in the financial, banking, or accounting services industries. The Center also features a 60-seat seminar room and a 25-seat development lab.
- With the generous support of Stuart Subotnick ('62), Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Metromedia International Group, Inc., and Bert W. ('54) and Sandra ('55) Wasserman, the Zicklin School in Spring 2000 opened a state-of-the-art Financial Services Center (SFSC) whose 42-workstation trading floor permits simulation of a complete set of investment analysis and trading operations activities.
- The Wasserman Trading Floor operates as a high-tech, hands-on instructional classroom. It provides students and faculty access to real-time financial data, professional research tools, and leading analytic software. At other times, the floor is a lab for use by students and faculty.
