Bloomberg Trading Suite

Bloomberg provides financial software tools such as an analytics and equity trading platform, data services and news to financial companies and organisations worldwide together with television, radio and magazines.

"The University’s Bloomberg Trading Suite is extremely useful for anyone wanting to work in the financial markets," explains Jean-Yves Pitarakis, Professor of Economics. "Bloomberg terminals are widely used by professional traders both in the City of London and across the world to monitor and analyse stock; a knowledge of the systems will be invaluable for graduates who are aiming for a career in finance."

Students of economics and management subjects have priority to use the terminals, together with members of the Economics Society.
