NYSE Technologies and Singapore Management University Team up to Strengthen Financial Markets Technology Education
NYSE Technologies, the global commercial technology unit of NYSE Euronext, announced March 23 that it is working with Singapore Management University’s Master of IT in Business (Financial Services) programme to develop educational labs for hands-on learning experiences with trading processes and technologies. Students of SMU’s Master of IT in Business (Financial Services) programme will be trained in designing, using and managing the technology infrastructure that powers trading across global financial markets and stock exchanges.
Students will have access to much of NYSE Technologies’ innovative, low-latency product portfolio, including its Feed Handlers with market data, Data Fabric middleware and other core infrastructure solutions like the Risk Management Gateway and FIX engines.
“As a global leader in financial markets technology solutions, we are very pleased to work closely with SMU’s School of Information Systems in its mission of empowering the next generation of financial markets technologists and process innovators through its MITB (Financial Services) program,” said Peter Tierney, Managing Director, Asia Pacific. “Creating a classroom experience that mirrors real-world trading environments will provide SMU students better understanding of the financial markets and the technology that support them. NYSE Technologies is proud to be contributing to the development of tomorrow’s technology leaders.”
Said Professor Steven Miller, Dean of the SMU School of Information Systems:
“Information Technology is the key to realizing service improvements, process innovations and productivity enhancements in the world of financial markets and exchanges. We are pleased to partner with NYSE Technologies to get our students to understand and use their cutting-edge IT solutions. This enables us to better prepare Technology and Operations professionals to manage innovation and transformation initiatives across global financial markets.”
Through this new partnership with NYSE Technologies, the Financial Markets Technology course in SMU’s Master of IT in Business (Financial Services) programme will be substantially enhanced. Students will gain more in-depth knowledge of trading technology architectures, trading platforms and data solutions that support high-speed transactions which are integral to global financial markets. By systematically studying trading processes and information flows, students learn how information, quotes and orders are managed for equities, foreign exchange, futures and other financial instruments. The courses provide facilities that give them hands-on exposure to the use of trading system technology, coupled with market data from several Asian exchanges.
