Financial Research and Learning Lab

Telfer launches its newly expanded Financial Research and Learning Lab and the student-managed Telfer Capital Fund

Thursday, September 17th marked a very important day for the 2015-2016 academic year. Telfer launched its newly expanded Financial Research and Learning Lab as well as its new student-managed fund entitled the Telfer Capital Fund. Faculty, alumni, industry partners and students, totalling over 70, gathered in the new space in order to kick-off both initiatives. The new lab is triple the size of the original and is a fully enabled teaching and learning facility with all the top financial research tools and databases, including Bloomberg, as well as new technologically advanced interactive learning tools. The lab has been integrated into many Telfer classes which will use its resources for assignments, and bridging the gap from theory to practice. These classes include Equity Valuation, Portfolio Management, Marketing Management and Finance, Ethics and Social Responsibility. The manager of the space, Pouya Safi, acted as the event’s emcee and introduced Francois Julien (Dean of Telfer), Leslie Weir (University Librarian), and Tyson Rigg (TCF Portfolio Manager Leader) to say a word about the lab and its impact for the University, Telfer and the students. The lab expansion was as a result of the very successful collaboration between the Library and the Telfer School of Management. Marc Albert and Pouya Safi planned and oversaw the project but everything was collaborated with Faculty, uOttawa Library, the Career Centre, AV, IT, Physical Resources, Facilities, Protection and the school’s Project Manager, Sylvio Miron. Everyone played an integral goal in making sure the project was completed in time for the school year. The goal of the space has always been to bridge the gap between theory and practice and provide the students with an avenue to excel. Read more ›
