Business labs

Trading room

NBS students have access to the Business Lab, a trading room that comes equipped with Bloomberg software, giving you access to live financial data from around the world. Equipped with 12 double-screen workstations, you can follow the performance of global markets and even create your own portfolio of stocks.

It's the perfect resource to help our students become business professionals, particularly those aiming for a career in the finance and investment industry.

Behavioural and Experimental Economics Laboratory

The laboratory offers space for 30 participants, taking part in economic experiments and scenarios. The experiments vary in topics and interactions and range from: finance, politics, decision making, equality, sustainability to cooperation, happiness and engagement.

The laboratory is closely connected with 30 laboratories and research centres around the globe. Participants are students, business experts and practitioners from different disciplines. The laboratory is founded by Professor Thorsten Chmura, who leads the Centre for Behavioural Sciences.
