The purpose of the trading suite is to provide practical training opportunities for students on courses at UCB's Business School and other finance-related modules across the University. The UCB Financial Trading Suite will be a key component of the finance and accounting programs at UCB, with practical work to be integrated into course assignments.
"What we're doing here at UCB is focusing on inclusive curriculum, making it more practical, more relevant to industry and professional practice," says Dilshad Sheikh, Dean of The Business School at UCB. "More and more banks and financial investment companies are using the Infront platform, so when students are going into industry, this is exactly the terminal they will likely be faced with."
UCB will be running Infront Professional Terminal with access to global market data and multi-asset class trading covering over 8 million instruments.
“This is an exciting new opportunity for Infront to be a part of the university setting, supporting young investors as they prepare for jobs in the finance industry,” says Justin Maddock, sales manager UK. “It gives the students a head start in working with the Infront Professional Terminal that is used by hundreds of institutions in the UK and across Europe.”
