Conceived by students seeking to simultaneously visually analyze comparable data, and supported by the Mary C. and David S. Corbin Foundation, the Corbin Finance Lab has emerged as a unique learning opportunity. The facility provides five student-based work stations and projection screens, and one station and screen for the instructor.
"The lab was a great place to present cases. We could put everything up on the screens and not have to flip back and forth. It also really helped in following complex financial problems.
Mr. David A. Redle,
Professor of Business Law
"The lab made my teaching more effective. Students could follow the progression of solution developments. With cases, multiple group projection of solutions resulted in student exchange of ideas--the students teach themselves."
Dr. Melinda L. Newman, Associate Professor of Finance
"I think the Corbin Lab is a great addition to the finance department. It enables each student to participate, and also allows students to compare analyses and see the different approaches and perspectives of fellow students."
Alanna Eibel, 2009
"The room inspires students. Once, when I began an International Finance class by introducing Iceland as an example of country illiquidity, I was amazed as students identified and added other troubled financial countries to enhance the discussion."
Dr. Douglas R. Kahl, Professor of Finance and International Business
"The Corbin Lab combines technology and teamwork to create a unique, hands-on learning experience."
Ken Adamo, Financial Strategy, 2009
"The Corbin Lab provides the technology and business atmosphere that can help students improve their business presentations through the use of case projects and other interesting assignments."
