More Bloomberg Terminals at Zayed University than any other educational institution globally

February 13, 2019, Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Zayed University, one of the United Arab Emirates’ top universities, and Bloomberg, the global financial information and technology company, today announced the opening of the Bloomberg Finance Lab at the university’s Dubai campus. Her Excellency Noura Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development and President of Zayed University, and Matthew Winkler, Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Emeritus, Bloomberg News, officially launched the Bloomberg Finance Lab, which is the largest of its kind in the Middle East. 

Zayed University joins more than 800 universities worldwide with Bloomberg Terminals or Finance Labs. With 64 Bloomberg Terminals across campuses in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Zayed University has more Terminals available to students and professors than any other university. 

Her Excellency Noura Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development and President of Zayed University said: 'As the U.A.E. continues to position itself as a leader in the world economy and international market, we must ensure that our youth are fully equipped to take on this grave responsibility in the future. The Bloomberg Finance Labs at Zayed University come as a great opportunity to prepare our youth for the corporate workforce.'

“We are thrilled to be here today and be part of this important milestone.  Students and professors at Zayed University will now have access to the same market-moving news and data relied on by the world’s leading business and financial professionals,” added Matthew Winkler, Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Emeritus, Bloomberg News. “We hope that the training and coursework offered by the Bloomberg Finance Lab will advance the careers of hundreds of students in the U.A.E., so that they can play an active role in the country’s evolving economic landscape.”

The Bloomberg Terminal service is a seamlessly integrated solution that provides real-time and historical data, market moving news and analytics to help leading business and financial professionals worldwide make better informed investment decisions. The service also features execution platforms for every asset class, research and a global network to communicate securely and reliably.

The Bloomberg Finance Lab will help undergraduate and graduate students build the skills needed for a career in finance. Students will also have access to Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC), an e-learning certification course, and CFAPRO, a database that maps the CFA Institute Candidate Body of Knowledge to over 387 relevant Bloomberg Terminal functions. Students of the undergraduate and master’s programs will receive training on the use of the Bloomberg Terminal, as well as courses on investment, risk and portfolio management. The lab will also be accessible to the university’s academic community to conduct research projects.
