Welcome to the Rick and Mary Lee Bastin Financial Leadership lab! The Bastin lab, that was made possible through the generous donation of Richard E. Bastin (class of ’65) and his wife Mary Lee, serves as a center of excellence within the Citadel School of Business.
This state-of-the-art lab which is built to simulate a real trading floor, features 29 computer terminals with 34-inch curved monitors, a 43 foot, full-color ticker display, a 92″ LED market video wall, one 55″ data display and access to a wide range of financial data and analytical tools.
The lab aims to extend educational goals by connecting theory to real-world applications, increase student knowledge and expertise and help students build their leadership skills. The lab is also used extensively by the Citadel Financial Management Association to manage a real money portfolio.
