Capital Markets Room

Lab designed to give students hands-on experience performing business transactions, including managing supply chains, trading stocks and bonds, and running business scenarios. Students can invest real money allotted by the school for real profit. Three projectors and screens allow real-time display of stock data, as well as data from student and faculty workstations. An elliptical ceiling mirrors the shape of the student lounge and is accentuated by LED lighting. The room is illuminated by glare-free up lighting reflected by the ceiling.

Class Capture

Fox Capture - also commonly known as lecture capture - allows faculty who use specially equipped “smart” rooms to record lecture or presentation (audio/video plus anything displayed on the classroom computer) for later viewing, over the web or on mobile devices. The captured sessions can be viewed in full or used by students to selectively review and reinforce concepts without requiring additional class or office hour time. Although less common, Fox Class Capture also allow viewers to connect live and watch an event in-progress.
