As part of the University of Stirling Management School’s focus on enhancing graduate employability we recently welcomed Amplify Trading, a global financial trading and training company, to campus to deliver a week-long Boot Camp for Masters students on our finance-related courses.
Taking place from 5-9th May, the Boot Camp helped to bridge the gap between academic theories of financial markets and how they behave in the real world. During the intensive week students were presented with live market data and had the opportunity to trade across multiple asset classes, gaining first-hand experience of how intra-day trading actually works.
