We’re excited to announce that Sheffield Business School (part of Sheffield Hallam University) has now implemented ZISHI Cornerstone to offer fully immersive training for students on the undergraduate BSc (Hons) in Financial Trading and Investment Management programme.

All undergraduates will study in-depth theory in Sheffield for their first and third years. The second year of the course will take place in our very own Bromley HQ, where more hands-on learning and simulated trading scenarios will form the backbone of the experience. Students will gain first-hand knowledge of working in the derivative markets, developing work-ready skills and behaviours for investment management, fund management and wealth management.

The training will be delivered by OSTC using its world-class ZISHI digital learning suite. Students will learn what it takes to become a successful trader while developing the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in investment management. Modules on the course include: fundamental economics and accounting principles, practical application of trading and portfolio management techniques and legal and regulatory requirements.

Course leader Damion Taylor said: “We’re delighted to be offering this new course in partnership with OSTC. This is the only degree course, probably globally, where students can gain a degree which includes financial trading experience. Our students will take a financial trading module in London, which will teach them how to use tier one trading platforms, the same as those used by traders. This course offers an unrivalled, practical experience.”

Students will also work towards two professional qualifications as part of the course – a Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Financial Trading and the Investment Management Certificate (IMC).

Lee Hodgkinson, CEO concurred, “We are excited to be collaborating with Sheffield Hallam University on this pioneering degree programme. Using our leading-edge ZISHI digital learning suite, students will be immersed in the realities of life at the vanguard of global markets.”
