Business Lab

Explore the global marketplace—on campus 

Our dedicated D'Amore-McKim Bloomberg Business Lab in Dodge Hall is your headquarters for all things Bloomberg. Any member of the Northeastern University community—undergraduate student, graduate student, faculty, staff, or alum—can access the lab and learn how to use the powerful Bloomberg software on one of our 20 terminals.

Getting started on the Terminal

Take advantage of five modules that will orient you to Bloomberg Terminal and set you up for success as you pursue certification.

  • Using the Terminal 
  • Analyzing the Market 
  • Exploring the Equity Market 
  • Discovering the Fixed Income Market 
  • Building an Equity Portfolio 

Your first steps

  • Scan your Northeastern ID to unlock the door  
  • Choose one of the 20 workstations 
  • Create a Bloomberg Terminal account using your Northeastern email address and class code 43XFV8C7SB43XFV8C7SB 
  • Start navigating by using the main menu, tabs, and command line  
  • Save your work often—you'll be logged off automatically after your screen is inactive for an hour 
  • Sign off as soon as you've completed your work so others can use the terminals
