Bloomberg Career Assessment for Students

Bloomberg is coming to campus Friday, March 29, to run a career assessment for students who may be thinking about a future in business or finance. The Bloomberg Assessment Test (BAT) is an opportunity to further your professional development. All students and majors are welcome, provided you have an interest in connecting to firms who are looking for great individuals. 

The goal of the BAT is to match student strengths with employer needs, so you do not need to be an expert in all sections of the test. Bloomberg has relationships with over 20,000 global companies that are actively using the test score data to fill full-time and internship opportunities. 

  • What: Bloomberg Assessment (screens students for careers in finance, economics, or business) 
  • When: Friday, March 29, 9 a.m. or 1 p.m.
  • Cost: free for undergraduate and graduate students
  • Register:

The BAT consists of 11 sections measuring finance aptitude and career skills with topics ranging from economics, analytical reasoning, and math to investment management and verbal skills. The BAT assesses your strengths and weaknesses for a career in business or finance. After taking it, your scores are anonymously entered in the Bloomberg Talent Search, which is used by employers to source top talent. All results are anonymous, and you maintain control over which employers can see your information. 

The BAT can also be leveraged to enhance your resume and social media profiles. Highlighting your participation in the BAT will differentiate you from thousands of other candidates by demonstrating and reinforcing your abilities in front of employers.
