Bloomberg Market Concepts

For students looking for a competitive edge in business, finance and economics and those who want to develop their business awareness, skills and experience. On this challenging course you will complete the Bloomberg Market Concepts certification (BMC), an eight module course that will give you a solid foundation on a Bloomberg Terminal used by investment bankers all over the world. You will develop essential skills needed to go on to study business at a higher level.

Overview

Using the Bloomberg Terminal computer software system, designed for professionals in the finance sector to monitor and analyse real-time financial market data- this course is a fantastic opportunity to work with this world-renowned system. Participants will explore a variety of different elements of business including marketing, management and leadership and ethics. Students will use the Bloomberg Terminals to conduct their own research which they will collate and present to a panel of judges on the final day of their course. They also have the opportunity to gain the BMC qualification in using the terminals. Lessons and workshops will be complemented by visits to relevant places of interest such as the Bank of England and a business university.
