The London Campus paid its fourth consecutive annual visit to the Bank of England this month with 40 undergraduate students experiencing a renowned business first hand.

First and second year students studying BA Global Business Management and BA International Finance and Accounting had the opportunity to attend a lecture showcasing the role of the Bank of England, its history and responsibilities. Students were provided with invaluable information about the Banks monetary policy and financial stability roles.

The opportunity to ask questions, including why low inflation is a safe and stable financial system matter to the UK economy and how the Bank contributes to achieving them were of particular importance to the students.

Lead Teaching Fellow Cesar Peluso said:

"We are fully aware that field trips have notable benefits. Students experience improves their knowledge of and ability to think critically about current affairs, display stronger historical empathy, develop higher tolerance, and are more likely to visit such institutions in the future.

We don't just want our students to acquire work skills from their education; we also want them to develop into civilized people who appreciate the breadth of human accomplishments."
