Jim ’69 and Charlie Mahoney ’69 are among the alumni and parent donors whose names appear on the ticker-tape outside the Bloomberg Finance Lab. While the lab was created with funds from a George I. Alden Trust grant, these individual gifts fund annual licensing renewal for the proprietary Bloomberg terminals.
Since its opening in January, students have used the lab to learn key finance theories with live data, experience major market announcements as they happen, and analyze new financial instruments as they develop—with entire classes accessing trade data in real time. Bloomberg terminals are the standard for financial industries and support collaborative work across the private, nonprofit, and government sectors.
“Working at Morgan Stanley taught me more advanced tricks, but I was taught my baseline Bloomberg skills here,” says Hill-Edgar, who also led this year’s Fed Challenge team. “I’ve used the Bloomberg terminals to get the most up-to-date news from the most reliable economic papers that I otherwise would not have access to.”

The Bloomberg Finance Lab can be named by a donor at the $2 million level. Current use gifts will help us bridge the annual gap in funding for the terminals (approximately $125,000 each year) as we build toward the endowment goal.
