FIN 257 - Introduction to the Bloomberg Terminal


This course will train students in the use of the Bloomberg terminal software via hands-on application and analysis.  Students need not be finance majors.  However, given that Bloomberg is a financial tool, students should have some familiarity with, and interest in, finance when taking this course.  Some of all of the following topics will be explored at an introductory level via the terminal software:  stocks, bonds, charting, fund analysis, economics, supply chain analysis, and Excel integration.  Students will also use the software to analyze broader business issues in marketing and management. If this course was taken as a topics course in MGT 290, it cannot be repeated for credit.

Course Typically Offered: Fall and Spring

Credits: 1
