The Collins College of Business offers facilities for learning beyond the classroom and networking with the community.  Students are encouraged to take advantage of these facilities throughout their time on campus.

The Risk Management Center (RMC)

The RMC is a state-of-the-art learning environment integrating trading floor technology and graduate study in financial theory and risk management. Students manage an investment fund of over $4 million in this learning lab.

The Risk Management Center (RMC) is an intensive, state-of-the-art environment for experimental learning and professional development. Students conduct research, classroom projects, attend class in the RMC and participate in controlled financial scenarios where they must make informed, justifiable business decisions in the face of changing economic conditions.

The RMC is equipped with electronic stock ticker boards, computers, Bloomberg terminals, extensive financial databases and computer software to provide a lifelike laboratory where students can apply and extend knowledge gained in finance, economics, mathematics. Related disciplines can come together for collaboration, research and the development of interdisciplinary approaches to risk management.

The RMC was made possible thanks to a gift from Williams, one of the nation’s largest providers of energy infrastructure and longtime supporter of the college.

Studio Blue

Studio Blue is a one-of-a-kind resource at the Collins College of Business designed to teach students the creative process by solving real-world problems for companies as well as not-for-profit organizations.

Universities have traditionally emphasized analytical decision-making and neglected imagination and creative problem solving in business education. Meanwhile, companies need pools of creative talent to draw upon to compete in a global marketplace that demands innovation. Studio Blue brings together business education, innovation and the real world. It gives students the fundamental tools for creative problem solving and guides them through the creative process as they solve real-world problems.

Studio Blue can be thought of as a creative greenhouse where ideas germinate and bloom. Innovation is learned and applied to real-world business problems in a free-flowing environment equipped with mobile furniture, magnetic and dry-erase walls, a viewing room for focus groups and observations and other brainstorming tools.
