On Monday, September 28th, Cody Clarkson the Bloomberg representative for Wisconsin presented to the students in the Financial Management Association at Marquette University. In addition to overviewing the history and features of the Bloomberg system, he discussed internship and career entry level opportunities within the massive global financial firm - which is headquartered in New York City.
Cody also talked about Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC), which is an 8 hour self-paced e-learning course that provides a visual introduction to the financial markets. BMC consists of 4 modules – Economics, Currencies, Fixed Income and Equities – woven together from Bloomberg data, news, analytics and television. The course is available either through the Bloomberg Institute website or on the Bloomberg Terminal at BMC.
The Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) was also discussed. This is a global standardized online exam that assesses a student’s abilities as a critical thinker across a variety of competencies. It then enables test takers to showcase their strengths relative to thousands of other test takers to 25K+ recruiters at elite global investment and financial institutions. The BAT is offered to students from over 3,500 universities worldwide through physical, on-campus sessions or online sessions.
