Bloomberg Training

Dear all,

This is to remind you of the Bloomberg training sessions in which you had expressed interest.  Here is the program.

9:30  – 11:00 AM FIRST SESSION, P-22
11:30 – 1:00PM SECOND SESSION, P-22

Initially, the first session  was meant for faculty and the second for students. Given the demand it seems to make sense to open up both sessions rather than have 50 people crowd one. Therefore I request that some of you who had committed to the 11:30 AM session consider attending the one at 9:30 so that you may all have a good chance of getting your questions answered.

The overwhelming preference from the requests I received was for “beginner” training and that will be the focus in both morning sessions. Ms. Saigal of Bloomberg is available from 2:00-3:00 PM tomorrow, if there is any interest in a more “advanced” sessions from you.

Look forward to seeing you there.
