We opened our next #ARUplaces in 2014 and with it, we brought the world of financial trading into the classroom: our state-of-the-art Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab, housed in our Lord Ashcroft International Business School. The lab has 16 terminals, four screens showing Bloomberg News, BBC World, CNBC and Sky News, and a "ticker" displaying share prices from stock markets worldwide. Students can use the portfolio manager facility on Bloomberg - the world's leading platform for global business and finance news, data, analytical tools and research - to trade and invest using virtual money. All of this enables students to understand the strategies and techniques employed by real-life traders and investors as they aim to maximise portfolio returns.
