New technology is challenging and developing all areas of life and business
The finance industry is no exception. The increasing complexity of the financial world creates new needs. That is why BI was the first business school to incorporate the Bloomberg methodology into the academic realm.
The Bloomberg Terminal is a data system that gives users access to real market data and other financial information and news. Among other things, it can be used to analyse markets, and to determine the value of the company.
Based on the widespread use of the Bloomberg system, both worldwide and in Norway, we have created a Bloomberg room on our campus in Oslo. Here, students from the Finance programmes can acquire skills that are highly sought after in the job market.
Associate Professor Janis Berzins, who is responsible for the Bloomberg Room, says he is convinced that this is an important opportunity for Finance students at BI.
“It is designed to give our students a competitive advantage in the job market, and to spark general interest in Finance by having a place where theoretical concepts acquired in the classroom can be tried out on your own," he says.
"Bloomberg provides analytical tools for financial data from about one million securities worldwide. It has become an invaluable tool in a wide range of financial firms. I view it as a chance for our students to enhance their toolbox of skills to stand out in the job market.”
