About the faculty
Bloomberg Financial Markets Suite
New frontiers in financial education at Westminster Business School
The purpose-built Financial Markets Suite (FMS) exclusively utilises the Bloomberg platform for the purpose of providing a state-of-the-art teaching and research resource. Students, staff and researchers gain firsthand exposure to technology widely adopted in all the leading global investment banks in the major financial centres of the world: the City of London, New York's Wall Street and Tokyos Citibanks.
With globalisation of the finance market along with corporate developments, organisations require rapid, accurate and sophisticated in-depth analysis. There is a global need for well trained financial specialists in the industry. With the introduction of the FMS, WBS students using this facility gain knowledge and life-long skills in a real-time market driven environment. The Bloomberg platform is a service of choice for many professionals in the financial services industry. It provides the real-time and archived financial and market data, prices, trends, news and analytical investment tools that students need to make informed decisions about the financial and business problems they encounter in the classroom and in their chosen careers.
In conjunction with the use of this cutting edge technology in our teaching, Westminster Business School is committed to working closely with businesses and professional institutes to ensure our teaching remains current, relevant, and improves the employability of our students. We remain focused in our aim to develop long term working partnerships with the major players in the financial trading markets in London.
