Bloomberg for Education: Global Financial Data Crowd Sourcing Project for University Students

Dear IIMB students,

Leah Dodell ldodell2@bloomberg.net and Sheil Naik snaik16@bloomberg.net from the Bloomberg Global Data Team at Princeton invite you to this very interesting, educative and hopefully challenging online project on Industry classifications.

Students can hone their research skills and put them to practical, industry-relevant use by supporting Bloomberg. And they can do this from wherever they are!

While this invitation has been extended to only the select group of schools that subscribe to Bloomberg, the students working on it do not need to have access to the Bloomberg terminal to work on this project.

For any queries, Please reach out to Leah Dodell ldodell2@bloomberg.net and Sheil Naik snaik16@bloomberg.net who are managing this project.
