The Bloomberg Laboratory
Our commitment to becoming a leading programme in financial education has led to our ever-increasing endowments in incorporating the latest financial software and hardware technologies into our programme. A first-hand trading experience can be acquired from our exquisite laboratory, located on HKU’s main campus, which is a modern miniature of today’s financial trading floors. Electronic communication devices for delivering computational results are an integral part of the programme. The devices not only build a platform to exchange academic information, but also form an educational forum among students, practitioners, and academics.
The Bloomberg Laboratory of the HKU Business School was established in 2010. It is equipped with Bloomberg terminals for the use of students and teaching staff members of the School. Bloomberg Professional® services (Bloomberg) is the premier source of market information and analytical tools for financial managers. Through the Bloomberg terminals, students can gain access to the information available to practitioners and acquire practical market knowledge and skills they are expected to master for the finance industry. It bridges the gap between theory and practice, and helps students develop a holistic and coherent understanding of global financial markets.
