    The Henley Business School has a library, exclusively for Henley students as well as the newly refurbished central library. Our International Capital Markets Association (ICMA) Centre has three dealing rooms with 100 trading simulation terminals supported by Refinitiv Eikon and Bloomberg. These rooms are an integral part of our programmes, as they give our students the chance to put theory into practice. Take our Henley Business School Virtual Tour.
