A lot of schools already have simulated trading floors where they utilize an exciting state-of-the-art instructional facility that integrates hands-on financial services practice into the business curriculum.

Equipped with high-end networked computer workstations, continuous live data feeds, real-time market quotes, and computerized trading models, actual market technology is used to teach students about markets and financial services-valuable experience for graduates seeking leading positions in the financial, banking, or accounting services industries.

However, many hedge funds are closing and its unlikely that investors will put their money into hedge funds again. Are Hedge Fund incorporated curriculums outdated?

Good point Nin.

I find it hard to imagine a bullish market without hedge funds because practically hedge funds supply the money for growth. I believe that some product similar to hedge funds will surface when the market become bullish again, if not the hedge funds itself. So, I feel its still imperative for bschools to preach the fundamentals of hedge funds. However, the curriculums must also be tailored to survive crisis market situations.
