Students on courses including economics, accounting, mathematics and finance can monitor and analyse real-time financial data in our Bloomberg Suite.
A Bloomberg terminal is something that is used by professional economists often in a financial related role and it shows live prices of things like equity shares or stocks or currency fluctuations. As a university we have access to this, just slightly delayed so we can’t actually gamble any money on it, but it shows students the real world application, what is going on right this second and we can use that data to directly add some value on to the theory that we teach so we can find out information about stocks and shares, about businesses but also trades and commodities.
This is a real benefit for students when they graduate, mainly because they are able to see economics live in action now but also the job that the students might be going to might actually be using some of this software so they are already familiar and they would already have that Bloomberg certificate to show that.
