Queen’s Management School is located at Riddel Hall, situated within the Stranmillis Conservation Area adjacent to the main University campus. The site now encompasses a new, purpose-built Management School and Postgraduate and Executive Education Centre with conference facilities.

Students have access to Bloomberg software, a market leader in financial news, data and analytics, which is used by many financial institutions. The Trading Room allows for an interactive and exciting learning environment which brings textbook theory to life. Students will use and have access to software such as Stata, Excel, Matlab, and databases such as Thomson One Banker, DataStream and Bloomberg.
