Overview

What Is Bloomberg?

 
Created by Michael Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP, the Bloomberg Financial Service provides in-depth, company profiles; real-time news; current and historical financial and industrial data; real estate data; U.S. and international economic indicators; and quotes and technical analysis on U.S. and international securities.  Historical coverage varies.
 

Who Can Access It?

This resource is available solely to current JHU faculty, staff, and students for their academic research.  JHU authentication (JHED ID/password) is required for access, in addition to your designated Bloomberg login and password.
