With decades of experience in the pharmaceutical and health care industries, John Klein currently serves as the chairman of Cambridge Therapeutics. Before his successful career at Cambridge Therapeutics, John Klein earned a master of business administration from the Roosevelt University Heller College of Business.

In October 2018, the Heller College of Business unveiled its newly redesigned Financial Trading Room on the 12th floor of the Wabash Building. The state-of-the-art trading room has 16 Bloomberg Terminals, advanced financial trading software, and touch-screen presentation boards. In the lab, students have access to historical and real-time data about publicly traded companies. In addition, the trading room now supports live video feeds between the Chicago and Schaumburg campuses.

Roosevelt is among only 21 percent of educational institutions equipped with its own financial lab. The newly renovated lab encourages students to apply classroom skills to real-life scenarios, which will better prepare them for the job market, said Asghar Sabbaghi, dean of the Heller College of Business.
