Bloomberg Market Concepts

Bloomberg is now offering FREE access to BMC, Bloomberg’s certification program, via the web, in lieu of a terminal connection. The fee for web access to this program is normally $149USD but is now being waived for academic customers.  This program is in place until the end of December.

Students with existing BMC accounts can log-in for free to continue working on their certification on the BMC portal.

Students without current BMC credentials can create these on the portal, using their @uwo.ca email address. In both instances, a certificate of achievement will be issued to students upon successful completion of the program, just as is done with the terminal version.
