The Hanlon Financial Systems Center supports many aspects of Stevens.

Meet the Donors 

“My wife Cathy and I have made gifts and participated in the design and building of the first Hanlon Financial Systems Laboratory and are doing the same for the second Hanlon Financial Systems Laboratory. The Hanlon Financial Systems Center supports many aspects of Stevens’ quantitative finance, financial engineering and cyber-security curricula and research.” — Sean Hanlon ’80, Stevens Trustee

Hanlon Financial Systems Center

The heart of the Financial Systems Center is the state-of-the-art Hanlon Financial Systems Lab. The lab integrates the latest hardware and software technologies, accessing real-time data, as well as historical time-series data, to support innovative research into the most common and urgent problems in contemporary finance.

Expanded Opportunity

In October 2015, Hanlon and his family announced another generous donation that will include funding for a new research and teaching lab to expand the opportunities available to students who study finance at Stevens. The new lab, scheduled to break ground in May, will emphasize data visualization technologies as they apply to finance and be laid out as a series of trading desks, to inspire greater collaboration and further mimic the Wall Street feel of the center.
