 Bloomberg L.P., the leading financial data and news provider is offering the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) FREE of charge on campus this semester. You are able to retake the exam for free, as well, once per calendar month. 


The BAT is a multiple choice test that evaluates your abilities as relative to a career in finance and then helps you to anonymously market yourself to over 20,000 employers via the Bloomberg Talent Search. All questions on the BAT evaluate aptitude rather than knowledge so you do not have to have a background in Finance in order to do well on the test.   Over 130,000 students have taken the BAT in over 1,500 universities around the world and in the past six months over 30,000 students have been contacted by employers to discuss job opportunities. Employers using the Talent Search are seeking a wide range of skill sets and experience for a variety of roles, including roles in Consultancy, Accounting, Insurance, Compliance, Research and Development, Investment Banking, Sales, HR, Trading, Marketing, Analytics and Global Data.  Don't miss your opportunity to be contacted by employers worldwide for amazing career opportunities !

As an added benefit this year, we are providing all BAT test-takers who complete the test a complimentary six month subscription to Bloomberg Briefs, Bloomberg's premium industry specific newsletter valued at $2,000 to the thousands of hedge fund managers, portfolio managers and banker subscribers.  Reading Bloomberg Briefs provides insight into the industry, helps you stay up-to-date on current events and enhances performance in interviews. 
Upon registering for the BAT, you will gain access to a premium pack that includes the daily Economics Brief and the daily Mergers Brief along with the weekly Private Equity and Hedge Fund Briefs.
