The Haub School is based in Mandeville Hall, located on the main campus of Saint Joseph's University. Completed in 1998, the facility represented a major expansion of classrooms and laboratory facilities for business students at the university. Uniquely, Mandeville Hall hosts one of only 15 Wall Street trading rooms among all business schools in the United States. The room provides access to electronic sources of financial and investment data, analytical tools, and trading simulations. Students in certain classes must trade stocks to prepare themselves for specific careers.[10] The centerpiece of Mandeville Hall is a 300-seat, state-of-the-art "Teletorium" (a term trademarked by SJU).[11]
