Cutting Edge Of Experiential Learning
The Financial Markets Trading Platform is a unique resource provided by Morgan State University that brings real market data from over 50 global exchanges into the classroom. This powerful experiential learning tool lets students put theory into practice, creating and managing portfolios of global stocks, ETFs, mutual funds, bonds, futures, currencies, commodities, options, and more.
This tool gives students the power to make their own investment decisions using virtual currency, in an environment controlled by the instructors at Morgan State University.

Our emphasis is on learning – all portfolio parameters are established by the instructors to adhere to the course topics. Students are encouraged to experiment, but the simulation gives a controlled practice ground to work with.
Professional research tools are integrated into the platform, giving students access to detailed quote and chart information, historical price data, global market summaries, sector analysis, analyst ratings, and more.
We want to give all students real investment experience to help solidify theory taught in the classroom. The global investment simulation does just that – letting students manage their own portfolio of real securities to bring what they learn into focus.
In addition to the trading simulation, students have access to a learning centre with over 600 glossary terms, videos, and articles on topics of investing, personal finance, economics, and more. All student support inquiries are also addressed within 1 business day.
