What is Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC)?

Bloomberg offers a programme called Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) that teaches you how to use Bloomberg, and about financial markets. BMC is free to City students.  You will receive a certificate of completion that you can add to your CV.

Modules include:

  • Getting started with the terminal
  • Economic indicators
  • Currencies
  • Fixed Income
  • Equities
  • Portfolio management

At the end of each section, it asks you to complete a series of questions on the content of the module. There is no pass mark, but you can see your score immediately.

Bloomberg estimates it will take you twelve hours to complete the programme, but because it is self-paced, this time estimate can vary. 

When you have completed BMC you will receive a PDF certificate in your Bloomberg Inbox. 

How do I get started with BMC?

Details are available in Signing up for Bloomberg Market Concepts.
