What is The BAT?
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 need to have a background in Finance in order to do well on the test.
The BAT is offered FREE of charge on campus and you can also retake the test for FREE and only your best score will be visible to employers. Students of all degrees and all levels of study are invited to take the BAT as we offer a variety of internship and full time job opportunities.
Over 100,000 Connections!
Over 150,000 students have taken the BAT in over 2,000 universities around the world and over 100,000 connections have been made between students and employers to discuss job opportunities. Employers use the Bloomberg Talent Search to connect with students based on their suitability for a role as determined by their BAT profile and test performance on the eight sections of the BAT. It's not about getting the top BAT score, but about finding the best fit for the role!
