Are you looking for a job or internship and don't know where to start? Would you like to make yourself visible to over 20,000 top financial companies and learn what they expect from you as a graduate?

Bloomberg L.P., the leading financial data and news provider, brings you the Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT) to help you identify your relevant career skills and showcase your abilities to over 20,000 employers worldwide, absolutely free of charge!

The BAT is a three-hour multiple choice test that evaluates your abilities as related to a career in finance and then helps you to anonymously market yourself to employers via the Bloomberg Talent Search. Through the Talent Search employers can quickly identify and contact best fit candidates for their roles by searching on the sections of the test that are relevant to their specific job opportunity. As different employers are interested in varied skill sets, students do not need to be experts on all sections of the BAT in order to be contacted! Over 75,000 students have taken the BAT in over 1,000 universities and in the past three months over 8,000 BAT test takers have been contacted by companies to discuss job opportunities.

University of Westminster is offering students and recent graduates the chance to take the BAT free of charge on campus this academic term! Whether you are looking for a job or an internship in the finance industry, or if you just want to evaluate your skills and enhance your CV, you can take advantage of this unique opportunity by simply going to and registering for an upcoming test session. Students and recent graduates from all education levels and areas of study are welcomed to attend! Space is limited, so sign up today!

Upcoming BAT sessions at Westminster Business School

Please note: The test on 20 February is open to students and recent graduates across the University. The test on 2 April is open only to students and recent graduates of Westminster Business School. However, students and graduates from other schools may who sat the test on 20 February may retake it on 2 April.

No preparation is needed for the test and you may retake the BAT for free in order to improve your scores. If you would like to retake the BAT, please email [email protected] at least one week in advance of the session.
