On April 9, the School of Business Administration at Gonzaga University held an official dedication ceremony upon the completion of the new Jack H. Hemmingson Finance Lab. An enthusiastic crowd of alumni, community leaders, and Gonzaga students, faculty, staff, and administration were in attendance.
Across the country, business schools are opening finance labs and trading rooms at a rate of approximately 30 per year. The rapid growth in the number of these facilities reflects a growing need to provide 21st century business students with hands-on opportunities for learning about markets, finance, and trading. Due to work begun by Bud Barnes, and now funded by a lead gift, the Hemmingson Finance Lab will begin operations with the start of the Fall 2015 semester.
