We consider our research of the greatest importance and prioritise our real-world impact beyond the university; as such, our facilities reflect our research orientation, and we have sought to ensure our students have easy access to cutting edge resources. We are privileged to be equipped with an ExpReSS Lab for conducting economic and financial experiments, and a working papers archive containing work from current faculty and advanced students.
