Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC)

BMC is an 8 hour self-paced e-learning course that provides a visual introduction to the financial markets. BMC includes 4 modules:

  • Economic Indicators
  • Currencies
  • Fixed Income
  • Equities

You do not have to do the full course in one sitting!

Access BMC

Any current student, staff, or faculty member at Western is eligible to do the BMC training. The Bloombergs require an active Western ID - alumni and guests are not eligible.

The BMC course is only available from the Bloomberg workstations. To access BMC:

  1. Log in to the computer with your Western ID and password.
  2. Log in to your Bloomberg account or follow the steps on the screen to create an account.
  3. Once in Bloomberg, type BCER and Enter/GO.
  4. Click on the Sign Up option and follow the steps to create your BMC account.


After completing all the modules and the multiple choice exam, you can download the BMC certificate. There is no grade requirement to acquire the certificate - it is a certificate of completion.
