Bloomberg is coming to campus on Saturday, February 23rd to run a career assessment for students who may be thinking about a future in business or finance. The Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT) is an opportunity to further your professional development and all students and majors are welcome, provided you have an interest in connecting to firms who are looking for great individuals.
The goal of the BAT is to match student strengths with employer needs, so you do not need to be an expert on all sections of the test, however there is no negative scoring so it is best to answer all questions.
Bloomberg has relationships with over 20,000 global companies that now have access to use the test score data in their recruitment for full time and internship opportunities. Taking the BAT cannot negatively impact your employment search and there is absolutely nothing to lose by participating in this opportunity.

The Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT) is comprised of eleven sections measuring finance aptitude and career skills with topics ranging from Economics, Analytical Reasoning and Math to Investment Management, and Verbal Skills. The BAT assesses your strengths and weaknesses for a career in business or finance and after taking it, your scores are anonymously entered in the Bloomberg Talent Search, which is used by employers to source top talent. All results are anonymous and you maintain control over which employers can see your information.
We encourage you to use your BAT scores to enhance your resume and post this information on your social media profiles. Highlighting your participation in the Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT) will set you apart from thousands of other candidates. You can also mention the areas of the test that you performed well on during interviews to demonstrate and reinforce your abilities to employers.
