About the Center

In response to its growing reputation in finance education and applied learning, as well as the goals of  Seton Hall's new strategic plan Harvest Our Treasures, the Stillman School of Business has expanded its trading room and relaunched as the Center for Securities Trading and Business Analytics. 

Located on the fifth floor of Jubilee Hall, the area of the relaunched Center has increased by 50 percent, resulting in 12 dedicated terminal locations and room capacity for 30 students. There are additional tables for both small group work and instruction, and new video monitors that will enhance the teaching and learning experience utilizing state-of-the-art technology.
