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 (only your best scores 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.
