    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • The Insight Week was a 5-day programme. Each day had a packed timetable, containing seminars from different employees at Bloomberg and also 'project time' dedicated to the planning of a group project due to be presented at the end of the week. We gained exposure to a variety of different departments who explained how their respective roles fit into Bloomberg's purpose.
