Q. What is Bloomberg certification?(aka Bloomberg Market Concepts)
Bloomberg offers certification through a programme called Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC). BMC is free to City students when they take it on a Bloomberg terminal.
To get started login to a Bloomberg terminal, open the Bloomberg software, login with your unique login credentials and type BMC then press Enter.
BMC is made up of four modules:
- Economic Indicators,
- Fixed Income
At the end of each section the programme 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 eight hours to complete the programme, but because it is self-paced, this time estimate can vary. Unless you are taking it as part of a module, BMC must be taken on a Bloomberg terminal at Northampton Square or at Cass.
When you have completed BMC you will receive a PDF certificate in your Bloomberg Inbox. You will also be eligible to enter your CV onto Bloomberg Talent Search to get discovered by employers.
