George Mason University, ensuring the best education and job opportunities to its students, has partnered with Bloomberg to offer the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) FREE of charge on campus this semester!

Bloomberg is coming to the Fairfax campus on Saturday, November 9th to run a career assessment for students who may be thinking about a future in business or finance. The Bloomberg Aptitude 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 BAT is a two hour, online exam that anonymously evaluates your ability to apply knowledge to solve practical problems and to market yourself to the best financial companies around the world. Taking this opportunity now will enable you to identify your professional strengths and weakness compared to your global peers.

Bloomberg BRIEFS
As an added benefit, we are providing all BAT test-takers who complete the test a complimentary six month subscription to Bloomberg Briefs, Bloomberg’s premium newsletter offering (valued at $2,000 to the tens of thousands of hedge fund and Portfolio Managers and banker subscribers).  In order for you to appreciate this great benefit, just be sure to take the BAT. Briefs will help you, as a student, to sound smarter in interviews. So the sooner you take advantage of this, the better!  The pack includes the daily Economics Brief and Mergers brief along with the weekly Private Equity and Hedge Fund Briefs. We hope that it helps you with your job search and first round interviews.

Connect with Alumni
In addition, we will be messaging all GMU Alumni that are Bloomberg users notifying them of your university’s recent session and the anonymous profiles now available in the database. This will put your candidacy directly in front of key decision makers at elite firms in the finance world during this crucial time in recruiting season.

Date: Saturday, November 9th
Time: 10:00am — 12:00pm
Location: Innovation Hall, 222
