The Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) is an aptitude test owned, published, and developed by Bloomberg Institute - an educational division of Bloomberg LP. It is used by employers in the business world to evaluate employment candidates. The exam tests individuals on their ability to think critically on financial topics and the results are used to measure their level of readiness for a career in business related fields.
The exam is administered in 58 countries on university campuses and reaches out to employers on a global scale. It was first introduced as the Bloomberg Assessment Test, then changed into the Bloomberg Aptitude Test in 2013 as to reflect its ability in measuring innate financial potential and career skills rather than technical know-how and learned knowledge.
If anyone at Marquette University is interested in taking the Bloomberg Aptitude Test, there are four more spots open for the test session being held on Saturday, October 17th from 11-1 pm. If you are interested in a career in financial services you should consider taking this test, because it helps students measure their strengths, through the comprehensive score report, connect to employers, and lastly it is a strong resume builder for students if they score well. This test only costs two hours of a student’s time, as it is free to take the test on Marquette's campus and requires no preparation in advance.
