New Cutting-Edge Online Programs from LSBF

It is an entry-level programme, therefore it is ideal for young professionals who are willing to start a career in trading business areas such as foreign exchange, commodities and stocks. It is also ideal for those who want to benefit from flexible study modes: indeed students will have the chance to study not only at the campus but also online. This three-month-long programme offers trainees a thorough understanding of trading techniques and enables them to practise in real-life situations through real-time trading systems, such as Bloomberg and Trading Technologies terminals.

To get a job in financial trading it is necessary to have a quite a complex combination of skills in pivotal areas such as finance and business strategy. The practical ability to apply these techniques to a live trading platform is also crucial. “Working alongside the London Academy of Trading, we are proud to introduce this exclusive programme whose main objective is to prepare future generations of traders not only with the relevant skills, but also with the experience they need in order to get into the job market”, says Prof Maurits van Rooijen, CEO and Rector at LSBF.New Cutting-Edge Online Programs from LSBF
