Basic instructions for the Bloomberg database

What is Bloomberg?

It covers almost every publicly traded company in the world and has profiles on more than a million people.

  • Up-to-the-minute access to news that moves and shakes markets.

2. Hit <GO> or <Enter>.

3. Click "Create A New Login"

4. Answer the registration questions using Pace University for the employer information and your Pace email address (Gmail, Hotmail, etc. will not work). "Student" is not a valid job title, so type in whatever you want.
