The Bloomberg Terminal
Remote Access Bloomberg terminals
Since the beginning of March School of Economics & Finance provided to all its MSc students removed access to the Bloomberg terminals. Via a personal login account, and a pre-boked slot, students were able, during this dedicated/prebooked time, to also access the Bloomberg Market Concept - a library of e-learning courses that provides an introduction to the financial markets.
