Educational programmes for schools and delegations

Our LSE educational programme for schools, universities, business schools and overseas delegations.

Educational Groups

Our Inside the Markets programme has been designed to provide students and business delegates with an opportunity to deepen their understanding of today’s capital markets.

Using live market feeds and recent case studies, the programme is deliberately interactive in nature and facilitates active discussion on key topics in the world of finance today.

Whether your group has previous knowledge of the financial markets, or are investigating this sector for the first time, Inside the Markets can be tailored specifically to meet your needs.

Who benefits from ‘Inside the Markets’?

Business Tourists

Having run courses for delegates from Europe, America, Central Asia and the Middle East we understand the importance of an international outlook on the economy. ‘Inside the Markets’ provides an opportunity for you to learn more about the key participants in today’s capital markets and how they interact.

Business Schools and Universities

Students will examine how the role of London Stock Exchange has developed from an open outcry trading floor to the high-frequency electronic trading we see today and will discuss the implications of these changes.

Other topics discussed include:

  • The options companies have when seeking to grow their business and the different sources of finance they can access
  • A comparison of our Main Market with AIM
  • How the flow of corporate information is monitored
  • Different forms of market abuse

Secondary Schools and Sixth Form Colleges

Inside the Markets seeks to bring the financial markets to life, supporting academic learning where students have prior knowledge of the world of finance, and breaking down some of the myths for those who may not have been exposed to the sector previously.

Designed specifically to take into account the experiences and learning level of your group, your session will include the use of live market data and interactive discussions on topics such as:

  • Why companies float on a Stock Exchange
  • How shares are traded
  • How the finance markets work, and what sort of organisations are involved?
  • Insider trading and how is it dealt with
