Hickey Financial Technology Center
The Hickey Financial Technology Center (HFTC), located on the third floor of Siena College’s signature building, Siena Hall, is named in honor of Siena College alumnus Douglas T. Hickey ’77.
The HFTC was established to give students at Siena College real-world exposure to the data and tools used in the world’s largest financial centers. Students have access to real-time stock market quotations as well as the latest market news and announcements. Detailed current and historical financial information is available for thousands of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and commodities.
With the resources available in the HFTC, faculty are able to augment traditional classroom lecture with hands-on activities designed to merge both the theoretical and practical aspects of finance and accounting. Simulations using real or fictitious stocks and bonds as well as hands on projects and exercises help enrich the learning experience and give our students the valuable skills necessary for today’s job market.
