Finance, Real Estate, and Law

Our Finance Lab (163-2032), which is the second largest Finance lab in the CSU colleges, has Twelve-Bloomberg Terminals; where students will learn and work on the Bloomberg terminals, surrounded by a scrolling stock ticker and a big screen TV reporting the latest industry news and live data.

Investment—from securities to real estate to bonds—is the heart of the global economy. There is a strong demand for professionals who can understand the laws that govern businesses as well as those who can maximize wealth and forecast market trends. Those who study in the Finance, Real Estate and Law (FRL) Department will receive a comprehensive understanding of financial markets, business law and government contracting. While the career paths may be different within the department, FRL faculty members are committed to helping every student become a financial leader.

The FRL department now offers students access to real-time financial market data at the touch of their fingertips. The school has recently acquired a Bloomberg Terminal for student use and faculty research.

The Bloomberg financial software brings the pace and excitement of real business and macroeconometrics into the classroom. Students gain hands-on experience using the same information and technology relied on by financial professionals all over the world, to help gain an edge in a competitive job market.

 Having access to the Bloomberg Software is a distinct advantage for FRL majors in the following disciplines:

  • Corporate Finance

  • Derivatives

  • Futures/Options

  • International Trade

  • Investment Banking

  • Investment & Portfolio Management

  • Portfolio Theory

  • Securities Analysis

  •  

The FRL faculty and students would like to thank the following Alumni for their contributions to this project:
