Welcome to
the Financial Laboratory (FinLab)
homepage of the Corvinus University of Budapest

The Corvinus University of Budapest opened its financial laboratory on 21 November 2013. The laboratory hosts 12 Bloomberg terminals, a widely used professional trading and data resource in the finance industry. One goal was to establish a Trading Room, where in accordance with the international trends, the Corvinus University of Budapest will be able to support finance education and research methodologies, and by this, to enhance the attractiveness of the University’s offered programs.

The exclusive venue that hosts the Financial Laboratory is nestled in the state-of-the-art University Library. The trading room atmosphere is genuinely reflected by the monitor screens that broadcast world market graphs with 15 minute delay. All this is visible for the visitors through the glass wall of the FinLab. The Laboratory is unique throughout Central and Eastern Europe in terms of its capacity. We based our model of the FinLab on the examples of USA Universities of Richmond and Bentley.

Inspiration – Where the idea comes from

University of Richmond - The Lessing Trading Floor

The Trading Floor in Richmond supports the so-called „Experimental Learning” program in which volunteer senior finance students completely mimic the internal processes of a mutual fund and manage a part of the university’s funds (they enter into contracts, compose the strategy of the mutual fund, hold „board meetings” to discuss the asset allocation strategy, mandate brokers for transactions, evaluate the fund’s performance, compile the bookkeeping and the entire administration). Since all decisions should be backed up by researches and analyses the students can put their theoretical knowledge into practice - “learning by doing”.

The full documentation of the program and numerous articles published about it:
 *The Two-Year Student Managed Investment Fund: Coordination of Applied Investment Skills across Disciplines and Courses
 *Experiential Learning for Undergraduates in Economics and Finance: A True Top-Down Investment Fund
 *Expanding Management in Student Managed Investment Funds
 *Fiduciary and Legal Considerations for Student Managed Investment Funds
 *Rationality, Irrationality, and "Predictable Irrationality": Does Education, Curriculum, or Gender Matter?
 *Behavioral Biases, Gender, and Experience

Bentley University - Hughey Center for Financial Services

The Trading Floor occupies a relatively large area at the university as altogether they put into operation 45(great hall) + 12 (small room) computer terminals. This greater capacity is required because here they have more classroom sessions and external trainings than in Richmond. In addition, there are more students potentially using the room. They hold the classes, trainings and company presentations in the great hall while in the small room students can study and research on their own. The Trading Room is entirely managed by Richard Gibble (Director of HCFS).
