Bloomberg Certificate / Training

FREE only if you do this on a Bloomberg Terminal. 

The Bloomberg Terminal for non-MSB students is found at the old Research Desk on the main floor of Lauinger Library

1) created your account at the Bloomberg Terminal

2) For Certificate,  type in BMC then press the green Enter/GO key

3) get started.

4) for in-person training and additional materials: type BHL and press GO


  • You need to create your own Bloomberg account on any terminal and you can start and stop anytime. When you sign back it will bring you where you stopped. 
  • Bring your own headphones for listening to the training. 
  • Bloomberg will give you all the training when you start, I don't think there is any handbook out there. 
  • When you take "the tests" remember it is Open Book which means you can work it out on one monitor while you answer questions on the other monitor. 
  • Some people who did it said it takes about 1 hour for each module. 
  • The best is not to worry and just get started.
