Subotnick Financial Center
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 one of the few 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 (pictured), a fully equipped, simulated trading environment featuring 55 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.
