Abstract

I show you how to use the Bloomberg Professional Service (i.e., the “Bloomberg Terminal”) to obtain Bloomberg Environmental Social Governance (ESG) certification.

Bloomberg ESG certification is a new self-paced e-learning interactive course that can be taken for free when sitting in front of the Bloomberg Terminal. It is run by the Bloomberg for Education group at Bloomberg LP. I explain the structure of the Bloomberg ESG certification process and I give advice for anyone attempting to gain this certification.

You can make Bloomberg ESG certification a formal requirement in your course or a strong recommendation.

Bloomberg ESG certification augments the existing Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) certification, as discussed in Crack (2023b). Exploiting BMC and ESG certification for undergraduate students, graduate students, and academic faculty is part of a virtuous cycle that builds knowledge and skills that lead to a self-reinforcing increase in the use of the Bloomberg Terminal at your institution, justifying its funding and adding value to all involved. Well-constructed hands-on Bloomberg exercises (e.g., Crack, 2023a and Crack, 2023c for value investing and ESG investing, respectively) buttress this virtuous cycle.
