NDSU expands commodities trading room plansFARGO, N.D. (AP) — A proposed commodities trading room at North Dakota State University is getting an upgrade.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A proposed commodities trading room at North Dakota State University is getting an upgrade.
The state Board of Higher Education earlier this month approved a fundraising plan for the training center, which originally was set to open this fall in the lower level of a renovated downtown campus building.
The room was originally set to open in the basement of the modernized Barry Hall building. But supporters of the project believe it should be placed on the main floor.
NDSU President Dean Bresciani says many agriculture commodities companies are lining up to help finance the project because they need to hire traders right out of college.
A completion date for the room has not been determined.
Bresciani calls the trading room “a real dynamic game changer for the university.”
