At
ifs University College we are committed to the development of an academic community of scholars disseminating academic and professional domain research.  We arrange regular research events for members of our academic community allowing them to share any finance related research they have undertaken with their peers.  We invite all members of our academic community to attend our research events. This helps them to keep their knowledge up to date in terms of both discipline-based research and professional issues pertinent to their field of subject expertise.

These events are held throughout the year and fall within the following categories:

  • Pedagogic research (informing learning, teaching and assessment strategy)
  • Discipline-based research (connected with specified cognate areas in the field of financial education)
  • Programme development research (informing the aims and learning outcomes of each programme and assessing market demand)

During a time of upheaval in the financial services industry Triodos has been able to continue demonstrating an alternative and positive approach to banking.
