ShareBusinessFinancial Center The McLean Center for Finance and Economics, located in the Academic Computer Center, opened its doors during the start of the spring 2006 semester. The Center provides students with access to real-time financial data from a variety of sources including the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. With access to breaking world news headlines, students utilize real-world information and data to support the theories presented in the classroom. The Center’s resources have had a profound impact on the delivery of business education at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The resources add an additional hands-on component to Rivier’s business programs, a critical component of business education since many students are visual learners.
