Course summary

Overview

This programme is aimed at students with a strong interest in financial trading in integrated financial markets. You will focus on trading and the behaviour of global financial markets through the use of an on campus simulated trading floor, which provides practical exposure and hands-on experience in the art of trading.

In addition, you will gain career ready business skills that are sought after by employers, including teamwork, communication, presentation and leadership skills.

This course provides students with the practical skills necessary to effectively lead in the fast-paced world of the global markets.

Course information

You’ll develop a thorough understanding of how the markets work, enabling you to make money, while understanding where the pitfalls lie and how best to avoid them.

‘Trading’ covers the selection, purchase and sale of financial securities, and is at the core of global financial markets. Its activities range from arbitrage and market-making by individual traders to proprietary trading by financial institutions. To be a successful trader, and to lead trading desks or departments, you need an understanding of trading economics, global economic fundamentals, market behaviour analysis, technical indicators and algorithmic trading.

Using our on-campus simulated trading floor, this course offers hands-on experience in the art of trading. This practical dimension is underpinned by a solid grounding in the behaviour of global financial markets, the principles of equity trading and evaluation, bond trading and financial derivatives, stock markets in emerging economies, and proprietary trading.

Career prospects

This course will help you to become a smart and agile trader, able to make fast decisions leading to well-informed and well-executed trades which adhere to the relevant ethical and regulatory frameworks.

On successful completion of the course, you will graduate with a set of highly practical and well-applied skills which are in great demand within the global financial markets. You will demonstrate well-developed powers of analysis, clear perspectives on strategy and strategic thinking, and effective research and communication skills.

You’ll be well-versed in the principles of equity trading and evaluation, bond trading, and financial derivatives, with a good understanding of the economic, financial, social and technological contexts of trading. Successfully completing this course means you’ll have unrivalled competitive advantage in the global finance employment market.
