The Zarb School’s Department of Finance offers students the opportunity to obtain Bloomberg Essentials designation by completing a self-study program designed and provided by Bloomberg in Hofstra’s Martin B. Greenberg Trading Room, one of the largest academic trading rooms in the country. For the last 10 years, students have been trained in this state-of-the-art facility which is equipped with 34 Bloomberg Professional terminals. During the 2013-2014 academic year, a record number of 75 undergraduate and graduate students completed the Bloomberg workshops.
Upon completion of the program, the students visited Bloomberg Headquarters in New York City for a tour of the facility. Bloomberg staff also recognized their 2013-2014 BESS designees during a special ceremony officiated by Alexandra Huber, global head of training for both sales and analytics at Bloomberg.
“I have been organizing these ceremony visits for the last year ten years and know first-hand that visiting Bloomberg and receiving their BESS designations from Bloomberg staff is one of the most memorable highlights of their Zarb experience,” stated Dr. Ahmet Karagozoglu, Academic Director of the Martin B Greenberg Trading Room and Professor of Finance.
