The Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) helps students and recent graduates connect with financial employers worldwide. The two-hour, 100-question, multiple-choice exam was developed in partnership with premier financial institutions and university faculties around the world. Students who take the BAT uncover their strengths across a range of finance, business, career, and personal competencies and gain insight into their suitability for careers in business and finance. Scores are entered anonymously into the Bloomberg Institute’s BAT database where more than 20,000 top firms can search for internship and full-time candidates.
The Oct. 29 BAT has been canceled.
The test will be administered on campus:
Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014
Koffler Hall 118
*You must register at least three days prior to the test.
No prior knowledge is necessary. It is suggested that you’ve taken an introductory level finance or economics course to be familiar with terminology. This is not a test on the Bloomberg Terminal but on your business aptitude.
After taking the test, students can enter their scores anonymously into the BAT Talent Search, a tool used by employers to identify candidates for entry-level roles in business. Employers can view student profiles anonymously and may elect to contact students with testing profiles complementary to their available career opportunities.
