Sporting Solutions, the B2B software and data services division of the Sporting Index Group, has entered into a major collaboration with the University of Salford to establish a Trading School of Excellence (TSE). Individuals who successfully complete the TSE course will be awarded a Post-graduate Certificate in Sports Pricing and Trading – a higher education qualification between a Degree and a Masters.
Whilst in recent years the betting industry has shed its inherent pricing and trading skills, Sporting Solutions has demonstrated its commitment to invest in them. This approach ensures that Sporting Solutions’ partners benefit from the highest quality of pricing and in-play trading across the widest range of sports and markets, establishing Sporting Solutions as the preferred B2B provider for operators around the world.
“The TSE is a ground-breaking initiative that will reinforce both our core trading values and our commitment to innovation,” said Simon Trim, Managing Director of Sporting Solutions.
“Comprising a range of customised programmes and modules, the TSE will further develop the core competencies of the company’s trading staff, serving to enhance the professional development of its traders and maintain the reputation that Sporting Solutions has for employing the highest quality traders in the industry,” he added.
Dr Ian McHale, Director of the Centre for Sports Business and Reader in Statistics at Salford Business School, said:
“With a record of world-renowned research and academic expertise in sports statistics and analytics, economics and finance, the Centre for Sports Business can offer a wide range of training and consultancy opportunities for the sports industry.
“The Trading School of Excellence will give Sporting Solutions staff the best possible training in the field of pricing and trading from some of the UKs’ leading sports analysts and statisticians.
The TSE will be launched in September and will be hosted within the Centre for Sports Business at Salford Business School.
The University of Salford was chosen due to its world-renowned reputation in sports analytics and statistics.
