UCF today announced that students can now access the Bloomberg Professional service, used by more than 320,000 leading business and financial subscribers worldwide.
The Bloomberg Professional service, Bloomberg’s core offering, is a software platform that provides trusted real-time and historical data, market moving news and analytics to help business and financial professionals make better informed investment decisions.
The university’s subscriptions to the Bloomberg Professional service will serve as a resource for both students and professors. It will enable students to become familiar with tools used in financial services, thereby reinforcing classroom theory, while professors can use it to further their own research.
“One of my obsessions is to think about how to shape the culture of the college in ways that promote the qualities I want to instill in our students: risk-taking, a willingness to get out of your comfort zone, collaborating with people from different backgrounds, and making high-quality decisions based on real-time data,” said Paul Jarley, Ph.D., dean of the UCF College of Business Administration. He added, “the Bloomberg terminals will help our students use and evaluate real-time investment data, giving them hands-on experience that they will then be able to utilize in their careers.”
