Bloomberg boost for Plymouth students

Plymouth University partners with Bloomberg to bring stock market learning to life

Posted by Hannah Oakman | January 09, 2016 | Students

Students from Plymouth University are using up-to-the-minute data to tap directly into the pace and excitement of the financial markets.

The Plymouth Business School has teamed up with finance and media company Bloomberg to create an interactive learning suite accessible to those on a range of business courses.

It brings the complexities of financial decision-making and macro-econometrics into the classroom, enabling students to have access to the same information and technology relied on by financial professionals all over the world.

The resource is already proving hugely popular with students, and could prove a vital tool in helping them gain an edge in an increasingly competitive job market.

Hilary Duckett, Head of the Plymouth Business School, said: “The Bloomberg Interactive Learning Suite allows students to research fields such as corporate finance, derivative markets, portfolio and risk analytics, real time data and investment simulations. Using the latest technology, the students are able to undertake real world learning which both deepens their research and enriches coursework.”

The Bloomberg facility is already being used by students on the BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance course to gain an understanding of the stock markets. They learn how to analyse the markets, assess economic scenarios and interpret key news developments that might impact the global economy.
