University of Aberdeen unveils new Bloomberg finance lab

Wall Street is set to come to the classroom as the University of Aberdeen Business School announces the arrival of a new Bloomberg finance lab, used by the world's leading financial decision-makers.

From today (Wednesday, May 16) Business School students will benefit from access to the Bloomberg Terminal, a software platform that provides real-time and historical data, market-moving news and analytics to help leading business and financial professional make better informed investment decisions.

The service also features execution platforms for every asset class, research and a global network to communicate securely and reliably.

Students will experience what life is like for the 325,000 leading banks, corporations and government agencies around the world who already use the software, giving them real-world experience that will enhance their career prospects.

The lab featuring 20 Terminals will be installed in the University’s Sir Duncan Rice Library, which already houses its Datastream terminals. These enable the building of datasets of corporate financial and market information, complementing the Bloomberg terminals.

 

Mark Whittington, Deputy Dean of the University of Aberdeen Business School, said: “I am delighted to announce our partnership with Bloomberg, which is a major investment from the Business School that will give our students a competitive edge.

“Use of the Bloomberg Terminal will be embedded in our undergraduate and postgraduate finance programmes, and will play a key role on our new MSc International Business and Finance and MSc Finance and Investment Management programmes.

“As part of our agreement with Bloomberg we will also offer the Bloomberg Market Concepts certificate in our courses, so that our graduates can showcase their professional knowledge to prospective employers.

“Students will benefit from accessing the Bloomberg Terminal for their own research – in particular for their dissertation - which for many is the milestone achievement of their studies.”
