If you’re looking for a course that provides an introduction to the global economy and financial markets, then Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) might be the answer.
Created by Bloomberg, BMC is an e-learning tool. It is an 10-12 hour interactive self-paced certification course delivered through the Bloomberg terminal.

The Core Concepts course has 4 modules (takes approx. 8 hours) which cover the following areas:
- Economic Indicators

Getting started on the terminal (approx. 2 hours) explains the Bloomberg terminal functionality including the keyboard, command line, tabs, menus and autocomplete to help navigate the platform and find the data. It also covers screening for stocks and bonds and downloading data to Excel.
Portfolio analysis (approx. 2 hours) explains how to create a portfolio, learn how to invest in your portfolio and use tools to analyse the performance of your portfolio. [Please note: no live trading is possible on Bloomberg academic subscriptions].
After successful completion of BMC, you will receive a certificate of completion which is available to download and include on your CV.
To access BMC you will need to make sure you have set up your Bloomberg account and have your own login. You can then get started by typing: BMC <GO> in the top left corner of the screen.
