Christ Church Business School Trading Floor
Our Christ Church Business School Trading Floor offers Accounting and Finance students the chance to gain practical experience of trade floor activities and financial market analysis.
We are one of the few universities in the UK offering direct use of Bloomberg data, information and analytics in a dedicated trading room which provides a simulation of what it’s like to work on a real trading floor in the financial district.
