One of the core components of the BCLC experience is to introduce students to a wide range of essential business insights and tools. Every Business student should know how to access and utilize a Bloomberg Terminal.

The Bloomberg Certification (BESS) is a training portal that helps students like yourself learn core Bloomberg functionality and key market fundamentals. The training process includes three phases: training videos, exams and acknowledgments.

To get started:

1. Login to the Bloomberg Terminal using your own login name and password (If you do not have a login yet, see “Creating a Bloomberg Login”).

2. Type the Bloomberg mnemonic “BESS” followed by <GO> into the command line located in the upper right corner.

3. You should now be at the Bloomberg screen titled “Training Videos.” Follow the Bloomberg steps provided above or on your terminal screen in order to complete the training program.
