Bloomberg Business Center
As part of Chaminade’s effort to advance the mission of a contemporary Catholic education, a state-of-the-art, 20-terminal Financial Literacy Lab may be found on campus. Chaminade is the only high school in the U.S. with this many Bloomberg Terminals or a facility of this size.
Many of our graduates pursue careers in business and finance. However, even graduates who don’t work specifically in these fields develop an understanding of finance and the financial markets that will be useful in their daily lives as homeowners, fathers, investors, and consumers.
As part of a classical liberal arts curriculum, the Bloomberg technology is integrated into a broad-based financial literacy course and Chaminade’s established mathematics curriculum on the junior year and senior year levels. Students learn about financial markets, investing, retirement planning, home ownership and several other topics essential to successfully integrating into adult life in the 21st Century.
Over the summer, Chaminade sponsors Bloomberg Financial Workshops. The workshops, held during five-day periods, feature intensive courses covering a variety of topics:
- Business and portfolio management
- Marketing and finance research
- Economics and mathematics
An introduction to this technology and topic allows our students to deepen both their research and classwork, while learning how to analyze financial markets, assess economic scenarios, interpret developments in business news, and study their impact on the global economy. Workshop attendees may go on to obtain Bloomberg certification at their convenience.
The Financial Literacy Lab is also open to alumni who wish to utilize the terminals on an availability basis.
