The Allen H. Gould Trading Floor (GTF) and the Horizons Exchange Traded Funds Investment Decision Centre (HIDC) are unique learning environments that play an important role in enhancing the student experience at DeGroote. Using these centres, students learn industry skills and get a leg up on employment opportunities in the financial services industry.
The trading centres are powerful, sophisticated learning tools. Academic theory comes to life through “real” and simulated exercises which help students develop the skills they need in today’s competitive business environment. The floors are also unique research resources for faculty and students.
The GTF and HIDC also serve as community centres where specialized courses and seminars are developed to serve all types of investors. Both beginner and experienced investors can learn more about managing their own wealth.
Financial institutions can also use the centres for training new employees, upgrading the skills of existing staff, and developing or testing new products.
