Capital Markets Lab
To stand out in today's data-centric marketplace, business leaders need sharp quantitative and analytical skills. UNC Kenan-Flagler's Capital Markets Lab provides a state-of-the-art learning environment to hone the skills you'll need from Wall Street to Silicon Valley.
Information is at the heart of all activity in financial markets. Students must learn to use information and complex analytical tools to manage assets and add value for clients.
To meet this need, the Capital Markets Laboratory (CML) is the central financial resource at UNC for the creation and distribution of financial information. The CML also provides leading-edge research for financial industry managers and scholars with access to financial tools used on Wall Street today. The Bloomberg Professional is the backbone of the CML with Factset providing broad firm-level data.
The CML provides a real-world setting for students to manage equity and fixed-income portfolios. The CML enhances the Applied Investment Management (AIM) student funds program as well.
Additional CML facts:
- The Lab holds up to 49 students at 15 workstations and provides an exclusive office for the AIM program.
- The CML has open access hours for students to conduct research for assignments, term papers, theses and independent studies.
- The room serves as a networked computer lab for experiments and supports research in areas such as risk management and financial modeling.
