The Risk Management Center (RMC) is an intensive, state-of-the-art environment for experimental learning and professional development. Students conduct research, classroom projects, attend class in the RMC and participate in controlled financial scenarios where they must make informed, justifiable business decisions in the face of changing economic conditions.
The RMC is equipped with electronic stock ticker boards, computers, Bloomberg terminals, extensive financial databases and computer software to provide a lifelike laboratory where students can apply and extend knowledge gained in finance, economics, mathematics. Related disciplines can come together for collaboration, research and the development of interdisciplinary approaches to risk management.
The RMC was made possible thanks to a gift from Williams, one of the nation’s largest providers of energy infrastructure and longtime supporter of the college.
