Bloomberg Terminal Provides Access to Business Data
7/23/2014

Students who seek the latest business data to support their classwork at University of St. Thomas will have access to the Bloomberg terminal, a research tool that offers students access to real-time financial market data and business news.

Bloomberg terminal is financial software that provides professionals in finance and other industries access to the Bloomberg Professional Service through which users can get financial news for all market sectors, price quotes, multimedia reports, analytics and trading capabilities into a single platform.

James Piccininni, UST’s dean of libraries, said Bloomberg software will offer UST students the opportunity to become proficient at using a tool relied on by many business professionals. In addition, there is an available Bloomberg certification course through the terminal that will provide students with a competitive edge for job seeking.

“The Bloomberg terminal is certainly among the best research tools available today for market research,” Piccininni said. “The acquisition of a Bloomberg terminal will significantly strengthen the library’s resource offerings to our business students.”

Dr. Beena George, dean of the Cameron School of Business, worked with Piccininni to acquire the Bloomberg software.

“Having access to the Bloomberg terminal on campus will be a distinct advantage for our students,” George said. “They will gain hands-on experience with the same tools used by financial professionals all over the world.”

The Bloomberg terminal will be set up in the Doherty Library Student Computer Lab.  A UST ID card is required for access to the lab.

Students will need to log into the Bloomberg resource and create a personal account. The Bloomberg terminal is available to students beginning August.  Students can reserve the terminal for up to two hours per day using the UST online registration system.
