Friends University business students have the opportunity to experience the Bloomberg Terminal in the classroom to enhance their academic studies and give them a leg up as they pursue their career goals. The Bloomberg Terminal is the same platform used by the world’s leading banks, corporations and government agencies to view real-time global financial data, news feeds and messages.
“This has been a long-term vision at Friends University and we are pleased to be able to offer this valuable tool to our students,” said Dr. Jim Long, professor of finance and division chair of business at Friends University. “Students are gaining a practical application in the world of finance in which they can take these lessons and apply them in their future careers.”
Friends University is one of approximately 300 colleges and universities around the globe and the first in the Wichita metro area, currently integrating Bloomberg into the curricula of the business and finance degree programs.
Friends University, a Christian University of Quaker heritage, equips students to honor God and serve others by integrating their intellectual, spiritual and professional lives.
