Equipped with the latest software programs, the lab enables students to react to current and historical trading data. The second floor is home to the student-run Bull Market Café, a great place for students to refuel or grab coffee and a snack for a study break in one of Douglas Hall’s breakout rooms.
The CBA’s home was made possible by undergraduate student fees and the generosity of donors.
