Integrate Bloomberg into your curriculum with a Bloomberg Finance Lab
Creating a Bloomberg Finance Lab on campus allows you to help students build the necessary skills for their career, while effectively positioning your institution as a leader in the academic space. Following are some of the advantages you’ll access through a Bloomberg Finance Lab.
Company and industry analysis
The Bloomberg Terminal delivers what you need to examine fundamentals, assess relative value and understand the corporate strategies in play. Get insight into thousands of companies in more than 130 industries and understand the driving forces behind the movements in major asset classes, credit metrics, economics, and government policy. The Bloomberg Terminal brings together all the data, news and analytics to provide the kind of complete understanding of companies, industries and markets that is cost of entry these days in the financial job market.
News and research
With an avalanche of news, noise and information how do you cut through it all to get at what’s essential? Bloomberg News hones in on what’s happening, as it happens. Bloomberg research goes deeper and offers context to make the news make sense. Most importantly, students can then create their own robust research content that integrates their ideas with Bloomberg data to create compelling insights — just as they will need to do to succeed in the world that awaits them.
Market analysis and surveillance
You and your students will be able to monitor markets in real time, as well as the news that’s impacting them. Use powerful data visualization tools that surface the information you care about, with as much depth as you want. Our tools allow you to see the full spectrum of critical data, from macro breadth and sentiment indicators to intraday tick charts – and every other chart in between.
Student Managed Investment Funds (SMIFs)
The Bloomberg Terminal is home to the Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF), idea generation, portfolio monitoring and analysis. Use the Terminal to build portfolios, benchmark fund performance, conduct portfolio attribution analysis, calculate alpha, tracking error, value at risk and more.
