Bloomberg Webinar series for Professors

As most universities and schools are closed globally, alot of us are taking this as an opportunity to learn more and gain additional skills. We have created a few webinars to help you learn more about how to use the Bloomberg terminal and more importantly how to use it to teach your students.

Please sign up for the following sessions to gain further insight.

Leveraging Bloomberg Businessweek Case Studies When Teaching Remotely
Date: Thursday, April 23rd
Time: 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. UK time
Sign in

Bloomberg Businessweek Case Studies are sets of supplementary lessons and exercises that allow professors to translate textbook theory into the real-world practice of finance. With a focus on experiential learning, each set of supplements features a recent Bloomberg Businessweek article, PowerPoint slides, an in-class activity, a homework case study, and a tutorial video.

In this session, we will explore the contents and features of several Case Studies. We’ll discuss how to use them to bring the textbook to life in both your in-person and remote classrooms, including differentiation for classes with and without Terminal access.

With more than two million articles from over 150,000 sources crossing the Bloomberg news wires on a daily basis, there is enough data to spot market trends, winners, losers, and anomalies. Consider also readership statistics, which add another meta-data layer of analysis to every news article published and read on the Bloomberg platform.
Join us for a training session in Bloomberg news analytics functions and learn how you can incorporate them into your classes. By the end of this presentation, you will understand how to
• Find aggregated data on news and social media readership and publication count.
• Use these insights to extract statistics and spot market anomalies.
