Facilities - rooted in the real-world
You will have access to the latest industry software, including a virtual trading room complete with Bloomberg terminals, in a modern £39m building.
You will study Economics and Finance in one of Queen Mary’s newest buildings – the Graduate Centre which opened in 2017. The £39m building was built with energy efficiency in mind, and provides access to the latest banking and finance industry software used by economists in finance or government.
We are proud to be one of a select few UK universities that have virtual trading facilities, complete with 29 Bloomberg terminals, an interactive brokers trader workstation and an FXCM FX trading station. You will use the same software as real-life traders tracking the stock market, which could be of huge benefit to your future career.
In addition, you can use our designated computer labs that have a wide range of industry packages including Eviews, Maple, Mathematica, Matlab and Stata. You can access economic and financial data through platforms including Macrobond, Wharton Research Data Services and The Economist, and get free access to popular industry publications.
The building itself has a Harvard-style lecture theatre and a number of spacious seminar rooms to facilitate your learning experience. The ground-floor Café Grad serves Starbucks Coffee, as well as a tasty selection of sandwiches, salads and cakes.
As an Economics and Finance student, you will also have full access to the university’s academic and pastoral support. You will be assigned an academic adviser who will guide and support you throughout your studies at Queen Mary.
