Over 70 undergraduate students from Hult International Business School were lucky enough to have sessions on ‘Inside the Markets’, understanding the mechanics of the markets’ at the London Stock Exchange (run by the LSE Group Academy) earlier this week.

The group was made up from a wide range of nationalities, reflecting Hult’s diverse cultural student body, including: German, American, Italian, Colombian, Indian, Brazilian, Norwegian, Dominican, Kazakh, Mexican, Filipino, Chinese, Dutch, Ecuadorian, French, Croatian, Malaysian, Pakistani, Peruvian, Russian, Slovenian, British, Swedish, Uzbek, Venezuelan and Zimbabwean!

LSEG Academy is the dedicated training centre, serving clients across the UK, Italy and internationally, designed to help – whether a beginner or an experienced professional – develop all the skills, expertise and innovative thinking required to succeed in today’s rapidly evolving financial markets.

Hult students were mentored by Tracey Paul-Clark, Training Consultant for the LSEG Academy, she began her career in retail banking in 1982 and has a wealth of experience in financial services. The students were really engaged and enjoyed the practical exercises given.

•Regulation.

Students took part in a competition to guess the closing price of the markets to one decimal place!

Tracey Paul-Clark said:

“It’s always great to be able to talk to students about the markets and especially have them come into the London Stock Exchange. These Hult students were really switched on, asking intelligent questions and were really engaged with the topic”.

I also learned the key features of trading and types of market that are exists for different levels of organisation – also that the term Blue Chip comes from the highest poker chip in a casino!”
