The Centre has a global reputation for its excellence in undergraduate, postgraduate and executive educationas well as pure and applied research and consultancy.

The practical application of finance theory is one of the ICMA Centre’s key advantages and is why students and financial institutions alike choose the Centre for their education and training needs. This integration of theory with practice is achieved through the use of the Centre’s three state-of-the-art dealing rooms. All equipped by Thomson Reuters, the terminals run the latest industry simulation software such as StockTrak as well as the Centre’s own simulation software platform ICTrader.
