CATS College London – The first school in Europe to open a Bloomberg Business Lab

3rd May 2018

CATS COLLEGE LONDON is to launch its state-of-the-art BLOOMBERG BUSINESS LAB with 16 Bloomberg Terminals and four screens displaying the latest finance news and global share price information.

The only secondary school in Europe with this facility, CATS College London has designed a curriculum integrating the terminals to its teaching, exposing students to the world’s leading platform for global business and finance news, data, analytical tools and research.

Students aged 15+ studying A level, University Foundation Programme and the first year of a Business Management degree will experience the real-world of business and finance in the classroom with access to the same information platform used by leading decision makers in business, finance and government.

Mario Di Clemente, Principal, CATS College London commenting on the new facility:

“Our aim is to provide students with real-life skills and experience to boost their competitiveness when applying to university.

“The Bloomberg Terminal will help students develop their research and classwork, while learning how to analyse financial markets, assess economic scenarios and interpret the key news developments that impact the global economy.

“In addition, project work will include simulations giving students an understanding of the techniques employed by traders and investors to maximise returns through simulated trading and investment projects.”

All students, regardless of their course, will also have access to Bloomberg Market Concepts, an eight-hour, self-paced e-learning course that provides an interactive introduction to the financial markets.

Over 60 universities in the UK already offer Bloomberg terminals. The CATS College London Bloomberg Business Lab will give aspiring business undergraduates a head start on their studies. The Lab opens September 2018.
