Bloomberg Market Concepts (Online Training & Certification)

What is Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC)?

  • It is a self-paced e-learning course that provides a visual introduction to financial markets and to over 100 Bloomberg Terminal functions. 
  • There are 3 sections:  Core Concepts (introduction, economic indicators, currencies, fixed income, equities), Getting Started on the Terminal, and Portfolio Management. 
  • There are 160 interactive questions to assess your knowledge.
  • Upon successful completion of the Core Concepts modules within BMC, you will obtain a certificate of completion from Bloomberg. 

BMC is normally taken for free by Learners (Students) on one of Brock University's Bloomberg Professional terminals. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the closure of the Library, students do not have access to Bloomberg terminals.

NewBloomberg is now offering FREE access to BMC via the web, in lieu of a Bloomberg Terminal connection. The fee for web access for this program is normally $149 US, but is now being waived for academic customers. The program is in place until September 22, 2022.  You do not need to have a Course Code to qualify for the fee waiver. 


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

Students without current BMC accounts can create these on the BMC portal, using their 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.
