The Bloomberg ELP program recognizes academic institutions that are leaders in experiential learning through the integration of Bloomberg terminal exercises in their curricula.
Bloomberg is aiming, through this initiative, to build a community of peer universities and professors that provide their students with innovative courses to build their financial market awareness and career readiness.
In order to qualify for this designation, institutions must have at least 3 Bloomberg terminals, and at least 100 students annually who achieve the Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) certification.
BMC, which is freely available to our students, is a 10-hour, self-paced e-learning course that introduces the financial markets. It consists of five modules:
- Economic Indicators
- Fixed Income
- Getting Started on the Terminal
Since the start of the 2017 academic year, 232 students passed the BMC.
The Bloomberg Financial Lab at the Faculty of Economics currently hosts 10 Bloomberg Terminals. Students and lecturers can access real-time data and historical time series analysis in all markets, including foreign exchange, equity and fixed income.
