How can I benefit?

Our Boot Camp helps bridge the gap between academic theories of financial markets and how they behave in the real world.

You’ll gain first-hand experience of how intraday trading works on the world's leading market place for financial derivatives, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) and have access to multiple asset classes, including stocks, bonds and currencies. You’ll trade futures contracts using live prices in real-time, but with virtual money. The skills you learn will help you understand how to trade in volatile markets, how to deal with inevitable trading losses, how to manage risks under pressure and how to make better decisions.

Our innovative global financial trading Boot Camp will leave you better prepared for a future career in finance.
