The donation, worth about $1.5 million per annum, provides enough licenses to fill an auditorium-style classroom equipped with 50+ computers, augmenting our existing Bloomberg lab and every study/team room in the building, plus one license for each of our finance faculty. Now we are preparing to add the use of this tool to the curriculum, allowing our students to access the tools used by practitioners.
