We used Dealing Room with three different Business Management classes. All of them really enjoyed it and took it very seriously, whilst having fun.  It is invaluable.

“I went to the Investment Challenge hoping to learn about investments and the pressurized atmosphere of the stock exchange. I ended up having one of the best evenings since I've been at university. It was a frantic and testing event, but it was absolutely thrilling!”

Munro Stewart, Student, University of Dundee
