Cedarville, Ohio-From the flashy electronic data ticker to the live Bloomberg feed, students in Cedarville University's business program have a market-savvy new environment in which to explore finance. Named in honor of its sponsor, the KeyBank Trading Center will officially open on Friday, Nov. 4 in an 11 a.m. ceremony in Cedarville's Milner Business Administration Building.

Thanks to the generous support of KeyBank and the Key Foundation, the KeyBank Trading Center will give Cedarville's 80 finance students access to leading edge technologies and provide a more real-to-life learning experience. The center boasts 20 double-monitor workstations, an electronic data ticker, a data wall of constantly changing financial info, a 63-inch plasma screen for classroom presentations, and a 37-inch monitor for live financial news feed.

The KeyBank Trading Center is just one facet of a growing relationship between KeyBank and Cedarville University. Over the next three years, KeyBank intends to 1) offer professional counsel to the Cedarville finance program, 2) host students for educational visits to its Cleveland headquarters, 3) offer a summer internship to a Cedarville finance major, and 4) engage the finance faculty in aspects of KeyBank's business.
