Usage of the Bloomberg terminal & Bloomberg course offers

The Bloomberg Terminal is a software provided by Bloomberg L.P., which makes it possible to access a database with real-time courses as well as historical time series from equity markets, currency markets, commodity markets and fixed-income-markets. Furthermore, it provides data, news and research information about companies, industry sectors and markets.

The offers from the Bloomberg Terminal are free for every student from the university. The Bloomberg Terminal provides data, that is not freely available, and that can be combined with Excel and R. This allows you, to do research for projects on a higher quality standard.

In addition to that the Bloomberg Terminal provides access to a course called Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC). It introduces you into the concepts of basic Economic Indicators, Currencies, Fixed Income and Equities in an eight hour, self-passed, e-learning course. After completing the course successfully, you receive a Certificate of Completion. After completing the course, you can register yourself with your test score at the Bloomberg Talent Search. If you are interested in more specific course, you can take part at the Bloomberg University, which offers these in several big German cities.
