Bloomberg Certificate (Self-study)
Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) is an e-learning course that provides an introduction to financial markets. By taking BMC, you will learn about the financial markets, familiarize yourself with over 100 Bloomberg terminal functions and solidify your knowledge with over 160 interactive questions. Upon successful completion you will earn the Bloomberg Certification. Depending on how much you already know about financial markets, the program takes between 5 and 8 hours to complete. You can sign up for free at portal.bloombergforeducation.com/register. In order to get free access, you must use your udel.edu email address. Web access only allows you to complete the certification program. It does not give you access to use Bloomberg for research.
