Cottey College to Open a Stock Trading Lab on Campus and Will Debut E-Sports

Cottey College is a liberal arts educational institution for women in Nevada, Missouri. It enrolls just under 300 students according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education.

The college recently announced that it will open a stock trading lab on campus. Cottey will become the first women’s college to have a stock trading lab on its campus. The stock trading room will be ready for use in fall 2020.

The stock trading lab will be utilized as a learning tool for business-management majors as well as a workshop space for students of any majors,” said Jann Weitzel, president of Cottey College. “This lab will replicate a stock exchange trading room and will be utilized to provide students with exposure to investment theory and practice. It will feature state-of-the-art terminals and an LED ticker-tape display. Through this program, students will learn the skills used by professionals in the money management business.”

Additionally, the individual computer stations in the stock trading lab will allow Cottey to offer electronic sports as a seventh athletic offering, also beginning in the fall. “E-sports teaches the skills of teamwork, communication, working under pressure, self-confidence, and decision-making, among others. We are excited to offer this new athletic option to current and future students,” added President Weitzel.
