Bradford Trading Room
The Bradford Trading Room provides students with hands-on experience in a simulated trading environment.
Students get a feel for real investment decisions made in industry and learn how to deal responsibly with financial and economic market data.
With 12 trading stations using Bloomberg Professional - the industry's most widely used financial information software package - students can monitor and analyse real-time financial market data, placing trades on an electronic trading platform.
Students get access to data used for decision making in areas including:
- macro-economic policy-making
- central banking
- portfolio management
- risk analysis
The Bradford Trading Room is used in a number of our programmes, including the MSc in Finance and Investment.
It is also available for short courses and workshops.
