In the library we get asked all year round when training sessions for Bloomberg Terminal’s are. The answer is always at the beginning of the year. This year, they are so popular, they have added extra sessions! Please see the dates and times below. Be sure to follow the link at the end to register. Trust me, this is one training session you do not want to miss!

All sessions will be held at the Business Library.
Though we know your time here at the J-School is short and packed, these workshops are something that you can work into your schedule to help you while you are here at Columbia and beyond! Check them out and sign up for the ones you can. We want to make sure you have all the tools you need to be successful!
