With training sessions held in our Financial Markets Lab Bloomberg and Datastream, two of the finance sectors most widely used systems, can be accessed by students. These information platforms receive real-time information about financial markets around the world – the same information used by expert traders, financial advisors and business leaders.

Once training is complete students can book time on their own in the lab to hone their skills.
