Furman University recently unveiled the new Joe and Diana Hurley Finance and Business Analytics Lab located in Hipp Hall. Joe Hurley is a 1978 Furman graduate and CEO of Chi-Rho Financial in Atlanta.

The lab is a 600-square-foot space equipped with dual-screen Bloomberg terminals, a stock ticker, several flat-panel displays and large atomic clocks showing times for major trading cities around the globe. It will offer students hands-on, real-time training with “big data” in business analytics for a variety of applications such as finance, marketing, health care, real estate, insurance, risk management, government, and supply chain management, according to Furman University.

“The lab has a finance look and feel, but we can do a lot more than investment/portfolio management with the technology we have,” said Tom Smythe, Furman finance professor. “Furman supports its students, and this cutting-edge lab is just one example of it.”
