MS Programs Joint Company Visit Fall 2019 in Shanghai: Bloomberg

November 19, 2019

Students from MS Data Analytics & Business Computing (MSDABC) and MS Quantitative Finance (MSQF) had the opportunity to visit Bloomberg on November 19, 2019. The company visit enabled students to learn more about the company and the careers they offer.

Marked by a culture of openness and entrepreneurial spirit, Bloomberg is a global leader in business and financial data, news and insight. The company was founded in 1981 in the U.S. and has since expanded to 167 locations worldwide, including China.

The students heard from three guest speakers from different departments – Analytics, Bloomberg Customer Support (BCS) and Global Data. Each speaker shared the functions of their department, career development opportunities, and the skills required to succeed in their positions. A key takeaway was that in Bloomberg, there are various horizontal and vertical career development opportunities that allow employees to chart their own career paths.

MSDABC students gained insight into Bloomberg’s data acquisition and processing capabilities, while MSQF students were able to deep-dive into the types of financial research that the company provides their customers.
