January 2, 2024

Sandra Kahn Wasserman (BBA, ’55), alumna and patroness of the Zicklin School of Business, passed away on November 20, 2023. The widow of Bert W. Wasserman (BBA, ’54), “Sandy,” as she was known, was a devoted philanthropist who lent her name to various institutions at Baruch College and the Zicklin School, including the state-of-the-art Bert and Sandra Wasserman Trading Floor in the Subotnick Financial Center.

Bruce W. Weber, PhD, now the Willem Kooyker Dean of the Zicklin School, was director of the Subotnick Center when the Wasserman Trading Floor was named for the couple in 2000. “Sandy was enthusiastic that Zicklin was opening the first educational trading floor in the region and among the largest overall,” Dr. Weber recalled. “And when displaced Zicklin alums used it as their working trading floor after 9/11, her benevolence impacted not just our students and faculty, but New York’s financial community as well.”
