On April 8, after more than a year of debates on different levels, the University Senate approved the creation of finance program! Finance stream is a great program for students interested in excellent business education and exciting career.

I’m planning to make investment games a part of almost all my classes. In the past, one of my teams has earned eighth place out of 168 teams competing in a nationwide futures trading competition sponsored by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
The competition required students to execute futures trades over a four-week time period, and winners posted the greatest gains. (In futures trading investors make investments based on what they believe a share’s specific price will be at a specific time in the future.)
My team outpaced teams from Columbia University, UCLA, University of California, Berkeley, Dartmouth, Rutgers University, NYU, London Business School, Fordham, among others.
Team members included Charanjit Sandhu, Ruibing Duan, Huike Li, Tian Pang, Minalbahen Patel, Geetanjali Sharma, and Si Ting.
