Harris-Stowe State University Opens New Finance Education Center

Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new state-of-the-art trading facility for the university’s Anheuser-Busch School of Business. The facility includes a trading floor that includes a ticker that streams real-time market information enabling students to manage trade simulations and portfolio management.

The new center was financed by a grant from Wells Fargo, the banking and financial services giant. As a result the facility will be known as the Wells Fargo Finance Education Center. For Wells Fargo, the center will help build a pipeline of highly skilled and diverse college graduates that are potential employees upon completion of their degrees.

Harris-Stowe State University President Dwaun Warmack said, the university’s “mission is to provide outstanding educational opportunities for individuals seeking a rich and engaging academic experience. The Wells Fargo Finance Education Center will award unprecedented opportunities to nurture intellectual curiosity and build authentic skills that prepare Harris-Stowe students for leadership roles in a global society.”
