Our Bloomberg trading room

Preparing you for practice – employability

We’ve invested in Bloomberg terminals to get students using the same state-of-the-art software that’s used in industry. Alongside this, we’ve recently changed our teaching to put much more emphasis on development of practical skills, particularly IT and data-handling skills.

More about the Bloomberg trading room

As part of your course you will have access to modern computing facilities and specialist computing packages, including our real-time trading room, fed by up-to-the-minute data from Bloomberg Terminal.

Bloomberg Terminal is the world’s leading market data and analytics system, which means you will have access to a wealth of data, news, and state-of-the-art analytics. You’ll use the terminal to define your market assumptions, develop a return-generating strategy and execute trades over a closed network.

Our trading room sessions are supervised by experienced lecturers or guest traders and provide you with the opportunity to apply your skills to real markets and real data, and make use of simulation software to recreate the pressure of a trading floor.

We also invite guest traders to discuss curriculum topics, pass on their trading experience and supervise trading sessions.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

  • Quality education – standard four
  • Decent work and economic growth – standard eight
  • Responsible consumption and production – standard 12
