This guide provides financial research guidance for students in Prof. Clemens Kownatzki's courses.



Bloomberg terminals are on-site only workstations available on the Malibu campus at the Payson Library and Drescher Library. These workstations are limited to Pepperdine students, staff, and faculty and require an account. Students can set up the account the first time they use one of the terminals. Special assistance from a library worker is required to use the Bloomberg Terminals at the Drescher Campus Library.
