LSBF partners with London Academy of Trading

August 09, 2013

The London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) has added a new Professional Financial Trading programme, delivered in partnership with the London Academy of Trading (LAT), to its portfolio of online courses for international students.


The programme is designed for young professionals wanting to start a career in trading areas such as foreign exchange, commodities and stocks. Offered through online and in-campus modules, the three-month course provides a comprehensive understanding of trading techniques, enabling students to practise their application in real-life situations through real-time trading systems.

“Working in financial trading requires a complex skillset that combines finance, strategy and the ability to apply these techniques to a live trading platform,” said Professor Maurits van Rooijen, CEO and Rector of LSBF. “Working alongside the London Academy of Trading, we are proud to introduce an exclusive programme that will prepare future generations of traders not only with the relevant skills, but also the experience they need in order to get into the job market.”

Natasha Page, Commercial Director at LAT, said, “Through our senior trading group we have developed a highly specialised programme that utilises the professional skills of our senior traders in a structured academic setup. This is imparted to our students through a highly practical training system that is unique to the world of finance. We are creating the next generation of city-based workers with the highest standard of practical and theoretical skills.”

Students that opt for the blended option will be able to take one of the modules at the LAT campus over the course of a month. Upon successful completion of the courses, students will be awarded with a Level 5 Diploma in Applied Finance Trading, and will also receive a free advanced online certificate awarded by LSBF.

The first intake will be in October 2013 with the programme costing UK£5,000 (US$7,748). Enquiries from agents are welcomed.
