You’ll develop a thorough understanding of how the markets work, enabling you to make – or lose! – 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.

Not true? Then please select your country of High School Education:
When you graduate, you might go to work for a hedge fund, an investment bank, a brokerage or an insurer, working in trading, investments, passing to market, risk-consulting or data analytics.
If you work as a trader, you might specialise in a particular area – such as shares, fixed-interest bonds or forex markets. You could work as a flow trader, buying and selling securities, futures, options and commodities on behalf of clients. You might instead work in proprietary trading, on behalf of the organisation you work for (or yourself). Or you might be a sales trader, placing orders for clients.
Other options will also be open to you; you might be interested in working for company which doesn’t trade but which supports, analyses or supplies those that do; for example, a technology company, a publisher, or a research, media or news outlet. Alternatively, you might want to start your own business.
