Ford Fund, Lear Corp. Help Establish WSU Student Finance Lab


DETROIT — Wayne State University’s School of Business has established a new student finance lab through funds from Ford Motor Company and Southfield-based Lear Corporation.

“On behalf of all Wayne State business students, especially our finance majors, I am very grateful to the Ford Fund and Lear for their donations to get this finance lab off the ground,” says Sudip Datta, chair of the department of F\finance for the WSU School of Business. “This enables our finance students to compete on a level playing field with their counterparts in other schools in the area and around the world.”

The facility will provide students with a hands-on experience, using tools they would use in a professional setting, including Bloomberg terminals and a real-time LED stock ticker.

Ford and Lear each made contributions of $50,000 to the project.
