Bloomberg Market Concepts is a self-paced e-learning course that blends the fundamentals of financial theory with real-world events and data through a series of interactive and engaging tutorials that tell the story of finance from a practitioner’s perspective. Bloomberg Market Concepts consists of four modules – Economics, Currencies, Fixed Income and Equities – woven together from Bloomberg data, news, analytics and television.

To provide you with the best support during these difficult times, KBS arranged with Bloomberg to provide you with the Bloomberg’s Disaster Recovery service which will enable remote access to Bloomberg Terminals for faculty or students who require access for teaching or research purposes

Faculty and students can access the available shared terminals in the lab 277. If no available shared terminals, the users will see a message informing them that all terminals are in use and will not be able to log in until someone logs off.
Also, faculty can access the terminals in-person by visiting Lab 161, or the instructor’s machine at Lab 277.
