The Bloomberg Finance Labs at Zayed University comes as a great opportunity to prepare our youth for the corporate workforce."

The service also features execution platforms for every asset class, research, and a global network to communicate securely and reliably.

The Bloomberg Finance Lab helps undergraduate and graduate students build the skills needed for a career in finance, by integrating theory with real-world practice which empowers them with the hands-on knowledge and real-world experience they will need to compete in the market.

Students also have access to Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC), an e-learning certification course.
