The Subotnick Financial Services Center is one of the largest and most technologically advanced educational facilities of its kind. The Wasserman Trading Floor has 55 workstations providing access to key trading software, including Bloomberg, FactSet, and S&P Capital IQ. The Center also incorporates the 60-seat Sidney I. Lirtzman Financial Seminar Hall, and a 25-seat Development Room. The Center is designed to support experiential learning in academic classes, non-credit workshops, corporate events, as well as other events such as student clubs, and orientation sessions for new students.
The primary use of the Center is to complement existing and special topics courses in Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Statistics, Financial Engineering and other disciplines at Baruch College. Over 100 different courses have used the Center as an experiential learning “lab” where students gain hands-on experience working with professional financial software and trading systems.
Students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs at Baruch College are allowed access to the Center. You must swipe your ID card at the reception desk in order to enter the Trading Floor. Alumni are also welcome to use the Center, provided you have a valid Alumni ID card.

The Subotnick Financial Services Center was dedicated on March 28, 2000, with regular use of the Center starting in the Fall 2000 semester. The centerpiece is the Bert W. and Sandra Wasserman Trading Floor, a fully equipped, simulated trading environment featuring 55 high-end, dual-screen workstations providing access to real-time market data feeds, and financial analytical tools. Professional market technology is used to provide experiential learning opportunities for students to learn about markets and financial services, invaluable experience for students seeking leading positions in the financial, banking, or accounting industries. Some of the software available in the Trading Floor include:
- Rotman Interactive Trader
- S&P Capital IQ
The Center also features the 60-seat Sidney I. Lirtzman Seminar Hall – named after the founding dean of the Zicklin School of Business – and a 25-seat Development Room. The Seminar Hall is often used for lecture-style classes and student clubs. The Development Room is used for a variety of hands-on and instructional classes.
The Center also houses the Baruch Options Data Warehouse, which maintains historical equities and equity options data from the US markets.
The Center has operated 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. Additional support was provided by Compaq Computer, Nortel Networks, Merrill Lynch, Gruntal & Co., Neuberger and Berman, and the New York Stock Exchange.
The Center is located on the ground floor of the Newman Library building at Baruch College, City University of New York.
