NAPERVILLE, Ill., Nov. 16, 2017 — Students from North Central College in Naperville, Ill., will be able to compete for some of the best jobs in business thanks to the College's new Bloomberg Finance Lab.

“Our new Bloomberg Lab brings the real world of business and finance into the classroom,” said Dr. Diane Anstine, professor of economics and dean of North Central's School of Business and Entrepreneurship.

“Every business student will complete at least one course in the new Bloomberg Lab, where 9 workstations are equipped with the Bloomberg Terminal software, the iconic dual monitors and Bloomberg's unique keyboards,” said Anstine.

The Bloomberg Terminal delivers data, news and analytics through innovative technology, quickly and accurately to the world's leading business and financial decision makers. The Lab is also equipped with a 34-foot-long stock ticker and clocks noting the time from cities around the world.

“The Bloomberg Lab is a physical manifestation of what North Central College provides its students,” said Anstine. “We have a robust, growing and cutting-edge business and entrepreneurship program. Our Bloomberg Lab is a significant sign of our institution's commitment to students, who we are as a College and where we're heading.” And, students agree.

For Madison Adamski—a senior triple-majoring in finance, marketing, and entrepreneurship and small business management with a minor in international business—becoming Bloomberg- certified “will really give me a leg up in my job search. The certification allows students at North Central College to become more competitive in the marketplace. I will be a strong job candidate.”
