Started in 2011, Equities Lab has been used by many universities around the world. Professors and students alike have raved about the impact that this tool has had in their classrooms.

Students have the opportunity to turn theories and vocabulary into data from actual companies. Equities Lab provides the perfect educational gateway for professors to use it, as it is purely hands-on and provides all of the instructions and tutorials.
