WBS students: take the Bloomberg aptitude test and connect with employers

12 February 2015

If you're interested in a career in finance, take the BAT test and join the Bloomberg's Global Network to connect with over 20,000 finance employers.
Date/Time: Wednesday 18 February, 2-4pm
Venue: Marylebone campus, Luxborough building, computer room B16

The BAT is a multiple-choice exam designed to assess your aptitude for business and finance. You don't need to prepare or have a background in finance to do well in this test, as the questions will evaluate your ability rather than your knowledge in the area.

After taking the test, your scores will be entered anonymously into the BAT database, where over 20,000 top firms search for candidates for roles in areas such as consultancy, accounting, insurance, compliance, research and development, investment banking, sales, HR, trading, marketing, analytics and global data.

If you take the test you will also enjoy other benefits such as a six-month subscription to Bloomberg's premium newsletter, Bloomberg Briefs. This publication will provide you with insights into the industry and keep you up-to-date on current events.

Please note that registrations for the test are now closed.
