What’s the difference?
The Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) is a free, standardized, two hour exam (the exam has been shortened as of March 1) that is designed to assess an individual’s aptitude relevant to opportunities in business and finance. Every BAT test taker is anonymously entered into the Bloomberg Talent Search Database, available to more than 20,000 top firms and allows employers to contact a test taker for an internship, entry-level or graduate-level position. The test is comprised of 100 multiple-choice questions and 8 total sections.
Bloomberg certification is accomplished by creating a Bloomberg login, watching and studying online videos, and taking exams that assess your ability to navigate the databases and market sectors. This certification enhances your business skills and your resume, and makes you more marketable to employers.
Both the Bloomberg Aptitude Test and Bloomberg certification are available free to current School of Management undergraduate and graduate majors at George Mason University.
