Bloomberg At UConn
What is a Bloomberg terminal?
A Bloomberg terminal is an advanced computer system with integrated financial software, which allows users to access real-time financial data and news on markets, economies, and businesses around the world. The terminal can also facilitate trade placements and act as a messaging platform for other users on Bloomberg terminals. The vast content, trending news filters, research and analysis tools, and software integration are just some of the key features that Bloomberg has to offer, which contribute to its success as the leading financial computer system in the industry. Finance students are encouraged to become familiar with UConn’s Bloomberg terminal on the fourth floor of the School of Business.
