The construction of the new state-of-the-art finance lab at the University of the Incarnate Word’s (UIW) H-E-B School of Business and Administration (HEBSBA) wrapped up in time for the start of the Fall 2014 semester. The finance lab provides a real-world, market experience with an 87 inch video wall, 26 foot stock ticker, and a student-managed portfolio of $100,000. The lab is home to finance and management information systems courses as well as to graduate students and capstone seniors. Students have access to over 32 workstations equipped with industry standard software, giving them a head start in their career as they learn and apply course concepts simultaneously. The instructor’s podium includes an interactive touchscreen monitor that allows the user to create charts and graphs, manage multiple presentations, and transcribe information directly onto the screen.
