The Rohrer College of Business at Rowan University will unveil the Rowan University Trading Room Sponsored by Northwestern Mutual Financial Network on Monday, Sept. 26, at 11 a.m. on the second floor of Bunce Hall on the Glassboro campus.

Twin brothers and Rowan University alumni Andy and Scott Schwartz, both wealth management advisors with Bleakley, Schwartz, Cooney & Finney, LLC, Fairfield, part of the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, spearheaded the drive to raise $120,000 to fund the trading room. Other donors are colleagues John Cooney and Reed Finney, of the same office; Eric Olson, The Olson Financial Group, Summit; Kevin Hassan, The Hassan Group, Philadelphia; Andrew Braun, The Mid Atlantic Financial Group, Mt. Laurel; and the Northwestern Mutual Foundation, based in Milwaukee, which matched the individuals’ gifts.

The trading room will provide Rowan students with more hands-on opportunities that may impact their learning experiences. In the trading room, undergraduate and graduate students in the Rohrer College of Business will validate their textbook knowledge by buying and selling stocks with real money — $100,000 that comes from the William G. Rohrer Charitable Foundation.

Northwestern Mutual representatives have committed to a long-term relationship with the Rohrer College of Business. Additionally, on Sept. 26, the Schwartz brothers will lecture on “What’s next—A Message From the Real World” from 1:45 to 3 p.m. in the Student Center ballroom.

Northwestern Mutual is a leading American life insurance company and the nation’s largest direct provider of individual life insurance. Numerous leading investment industry publications have ranked Northwestern among the Top 10 independent broker-dealers, as measured by total revenues.
