Are you interested in working in the finance industry once you complete your degree at Schulich? Set yourself apart from the crowd by completing the Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) training program at the Bronfman Business Library or at one of the Bloomberg terminals in Room S336!
By taking the BMC, you can take your Bloomberg skills to the professional level that employers are looking for and give yourself a leg up when your interviewing for jobs in the finance market.
Now why would you want to hone your Bloomberg skills?
Consider this – Bloomberg terminals are an industry standard for financial professionals, as the terminal is a 24-hour, global financial services system that provides transparent and reliable financial, economic and government information on market sectors like equities, fixed income, bonds, and commodities. Once you learn how to use a Bloomberg terminal you can access publicly-traded company financials, market data spanning more than 20 years, current news, and much more! More than 320,000 of the world’s leading players in the global financial and business community rely on Bloomberg terminals when performing their day-to-day tasks.

While it does take approximately 8 hours to complete the BMC, we promise you won’t regret it. Complete it for free on one of the Library’s 4 Bloomberg terminals or one of the 7 terminals in Room S336. If you’re not able to come to the Schulich building, you can complete it on your home computer for a cost of $149 USD.
If you’re just getting started with Bloomberg and don’t want to commit 8 hours of your time to mastering your skills, you can always check out the Bloomberg Essentials Training (BESS) program. This shorter program is also free when completed on a Library terminal and will help you learn the basic skills you’ll need to navigate Bloomberg.
