Why Bloomberg?

The Bloomberg system is a leading information service for global financial markets. At least 250,000 terminals are used by investment professionals around the world. Corporate recruiters at Cornell are seeking candidates with competitive technical and financial technology skills. Gain this competitive skill before your next job interview. CALS and Human Ecology students can get started right here at Mann Library.

Bloomberg has a new training program called Bloomberg Market Concepts.  This program will use videos to introduce students to financial concepts in four areas: Economic Indicators, Currencies, Fixed Income and Equities.  The program then uses the Bloomberg terminal functions, Bloomberg News and Bloomberg television to provide examples and illustrate these concepts in different ways.  To Access Bloomberg Market Concepts, visit BMC at the terminals.
