Sheridan School of Business students get Bloomberg Terminal training to enhance their financial skills
More than 35 Sheridan School of Business students recently gathered for an introductory training session on Sheridan’s Bloomberg Terminals provided by Jessica Gollish, Account Manager for the Bloomberg organization. The event organized by the Sheridan Bloomberg Club attracted students from nearly every Business Administration program offered at the college.
In the student sponsored event, Gollish, trainer for the Bloomberg organization demonstrated to Sheridan Business students why Bloomberg is one of the most powerful newswires in the world as it delivers information to more than 300 other newswires. Students attending the session learned how to package materials they download from the service and how to register to be able to log into the Bloomberg service.
“It was great seeing a student operated club organize a professional quality training session. All of the credit goes to Scott Marchand and the executive of the Sheridan Bloomberg Club for making it happen,” said Lou Schizas, faculty sponsor of the Sheridan Bloomberg Club.
Bloomberg delivers financial information and news for every industry from banking and government to sports and retail. Financial Analysis can be completed right at the terminal and then transformed into a highly presentable document.
Training for Bloomberg takes place on the computer terminal and is conducted through Bloomberg University, an online training program. Graduates of the training receive a certificate of completion from Bloomberg, a valued commodity among potential employers.
Sheridan College has Bloomberg Terminals at the Trafalgar and the Davis campuses located in the Library Learning Commons.
