Bloomberg Basics Training

Bloomberg Basics is a proprietary training program created by the Masters ILC for students who want to learn how to expertly navigate the Bloomberg terminal, download data to Excel and analyze data in equities, fixed income, forex and commodities.

Bloomberg Basics is geared towards business majors and is beneficial to finance, accounting, business analytics, economics and supply chain majors.

Bloomberg Basics takes eight to 12 hours to complete and can be conducted through multiple visits. There are, however, suggested deadlines for the eight modules. Students watch training videos on their own computers, then come to the Masters ILC to practice the functions on Bloomberg terminals and complete evaluations.

Prerequisite Skills: The Masters ILC highly recommends completing Bloomberg Market Concepts before enrolling. Finance majors and collaterals should complete training during or after taking FINC 425, FINC 435 or FINC 440. 

Registration: Students who enroll in FINC 493 will automatically register for Bloomberg Basics Training. Other interested students should contact the Masters ILC director for additional registration information.
