Students gain access to financial software used by business and finance leaders
Alvernia University today announced that students will now have access to the Bloomberg Terminal, a service used by leading business and financial professionals worldwide, at the university’s downtown Reading location at 401 Penn Street.
“The introduction of the Bloomberg Terminal at Alvernia brings numerous opportunities for experiential learning within our new downtown location’s business lab,” said Alvernia University Senior Vice President and Provost Glynis Fitzgerald.
The Bloomberg Terminal provides real-time and historical data, market-moving news, and analytics to help leading business and financial professionals worldwide make better-informed investment decisions. The Bloomberg Terminal also features electronic trading for every asset class, research, and a global network to communicate securely and reliably.
The university’s subscription to the Bloomberg Terminal will serve as a resource for both students and professors. It will enable students to become familiar with tools used in financial services, reinforcing classroom theory, while professors can use it to further their own research.
“Our business faculty members are excited for the opportunity to integrate the Bloomberg Terminal into their courses,” said Alvernia University Dean of the College of Business, Communication, and Leadership Travis Berger.
In September, Alvernia opened its downtown Reading location as the center of its CollegeTowne initiative and recently shared details about the second phase of strategy at the university’s annual President’s Dinner.
