Since 2011, Stephen M. Timms has led International Golden Group as vice president of strategic programs in the United Arab Emirates. Stephen M. Timms holds an MBA in international business from California State University, Northridge (CSUN), which provides students a unique Wall Street experience in its Financial Lab.

The CSUN Nazarian College of Business and Economics offers students hands-on experience with trading technology in its Financial Lab. Remodeled in 2016, the Financial Lab enables students to use Bloomberg Terminals, equipped with specialized financial analysis tools, monitor data from the financial markets in real time.

CSUN purchased access to the Bloomberg Terminals with both state funds and donations from the Richard Siegel Foundation, an education-focused nonprofit organization that contributed $40,000 toward the Bloomberg Terminals in 2015 and $12,000 more in 2016.

Students use this technology in a variety of courses, including Business Valuation, Seminar in Financial Theory and Policy, Advanced Topics in Finance, and MBA Portfolio Management. The Bloomberg Terminals also allow students to work toward their Bloomberg Market Concept certification free of charge.
