School of Business and Computer Science faculty members Virginia Rich and Anthony Annan were interviewed by WMBC-TV on how Caldwell students are learning in he University’s Bloomberg Finance Lab, featuring Bloomberg Terminals, the same software and technology used globally by leading business and financial professionals.
Rich, associate dean of the School, said “One of the most important things we can teach our students is how to access excellent, reliable information, how to analyze that information, and very importantly, how to interpret that information and tell the story.”
Assistant Professor of Finance Anthony Annan said he sees his students–even those without a finance background– all of sudden “showing a lot of interest in finance because they can see in real time how some decisions can be made.”
The Bloomberg Terminal’s software provides real-time and historical data, market moving news and analytics to help leading business and financial professionals and government officials worldwide make better informed business and investment decisions. The service also features execution platforms for every asset class, research, and a global network to communicate securely and reliably.The University’s subscriptions to the Bloomberg Terminal serve as a resource for both students and professors. It enables students to become familiar with tools used in financial services, reinforcing classroom theory, while professors can use it to further their own research.
