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.
