We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Part of the triple-accredited Henley Business School, the ICMA Centre is the product of the first active collaboration between the securities industry and a university finance department. The ICMA Centre was founded in 1991 through a unique alliance between the University of Reading and the International Capital Market Association (formally International Securities Market Association).
The Centre has a global reputation for its excellence in undergraduate, postgraduate and executive education, as well as professional and policy development research and consultancy.
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. All equipped by Thomson Reuters, the terminals run the latest industry simulation software as well as the Centre’s own simulation software platform, ICTrader.
There are a number of reasons we continue to go from strength to strength:
• The integration of applied finance theory and industry specific education
• Innovative teaching by world renowned academics and industry practitioners
• Strong links with banks, trade bodies and other financial institutions
• The largest and best equipped dealing rooms in any European business school
• Excellent employment rate facilitated by our dedicated Career Development service.
Our location at the University of Reading, only 25 minutes by train to the heart of the city of London, provides our students with the advantage of access to all of the facilities, experiences and amenities open to the students of the University and Henley Business School.
The 320-acre Whiteknights campus in Reading provides a wonderful environment conducive for learning.
Partnerships and Accreditation
The ICMA Centre is in partnership with a variety of organisations to ensure all programmes are up-to-date and organisations are in line to offer students great opportunities.
