Pathfinders Update: Students Embark on Bloomberg Finance Program

Through the Yeshivah of Flatbush Pathfinders Program a group of juniors had the opportunity to visit Long Island University's campus in downtown Brooklyn to partake in a real-life finance program. We undertook the first session of an online course through LIU's Bloomberg Financial system. It was exactly like you'd see on TV; two computer screens with an intricate keyboard and complicated software. The program was interactive, we watched videos and answered questions on what we learned. We learned about global finance, markets, and currencies. After completing the program we will be awarded a certificate that establishes us as Bloomberg Market Concepts graduates. Big thanks to Ms. Hanon, LIU Dean Abe Tawil, and Director Izzy Maldonado! ~Joseph BenHaim, Class of 2017
