Student in the trading room

To support the creation of impactful research, and provide a learning and teaching environment to match, the Accounting and Finance Division has invested in an excellent provision of databases.

This in-depth range of access is supported by dedicated Research Officers responsible for managing and maintaining databases, and educating end-users in the use of databases resources.

This area is further enhanced by a support tier of specially trained academic researchers available to assist staff and students with database specific knowledge and access techniques.

In addition the School is proud to host a fully-equipped financial trading room, boasting a full suite of Bloomberg and Thomson Eikon/Thomson Datastream terminals.
