The development of this exciting facility highlights the continuing unique partnership between the industry and the Centre. Rene Karsenti, President, International Capital Markets Association The ICMA Centre was Europe s first active collaboration between the securities industry and a university finance department when, over 20 years ago, the International Capital Markets Association (ICMA) established a new relationship with the University of Reading. Today, as part of the triple-accredited Henley Business School, the Centre offers a range of undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral and executive education programmes tailored for the capital markets and corporate finance industry. The ICMA Centre is known for its student-focused ethos, which contributes to both the high achievement rates and the close relationships the Centre is able to maintain with its alumni. This ongoing relationship with our former students provides networking and industry-based opportunities for new graduates and current students. With our alumni based in over 155 countries, these opportunities are global, as well as local. The practical application of finance theory is one of the ICMA Centre s key advantages and is why students and financial institutions alike choose the Centre for their education and training needs. This integration of theory with practice is achieved through the use of the Centre s three state-of-the-art dealing rooms. Equipped by Thomson Reuters with the latest industry simulation software, as well as our own simulation software platform, ICTrader, the trading rooms have always been an integral part of the teaching and learning style of the Centre. To experience the thrill and pressure of a live market take positions, quote two-way prices and manage the risk of a $50 million to $100 million trading book gives our students an insight and experience unavailable in more traditional finance degrees offered elsewhere in the UK. Our location in Reading is just 25 minutes by train to the heart of the City of London, and our students enjoy access to the extensive facilities and experiences on the beautiful 320-acre Whiteknights campus. 4 Postgraduate masters programmes
