The Bloomberg Terminal is a powerful multi-functional tool used by over 300,000 finance professionals in 170+ countries. It is an interactive network providing coverage on every major asset class, most publicly traded securities, industries, economies and more. It provides real-time news, data, analytics, research, and business intelligence among other things all in a single platform.
While the lab is closed due to the pandemic, users are invited to create an account on Bloomberg's online portal by following the detailed instructions below.
Access to Bloomberg through its online portal will end upon reopening of the lab. We ask users to limit their sessions to 90 minutes.
N.B. Bloomberg may only be used for non-commercial research purposes.
- First create a Bloomberg for Education Account
- Next, request access to a Bloomberg Terminal
If your account gets deactivated, the Lab will need to contact Bloomberg.
The Bloomberg Terminal can be difficult to navigate at first glance. For a list of Bloomberg functions and for instructions on how to use the Terminal, click here to consult our library PDF guides.
