IIT Stuart has partnered with Bloomberg to offer the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) to undergraduate and graduate students.
WHAT IS THE BAT?
The BAT is a two hour, 100 multiple choice question exam that tests your aptitude for a career in finance across eight performance areas (News Analysis, Economics, Math Skills, Analytical Reasoning, Financial Statement Analysis, Investment Banking, Global Markets and Chart and Graph Analysis).
WHY SHOULD I TAKE THE BAT?
Your score is anonymously entered into the BAT database, which recruiters search daily to connect with candidates for internship and entry-level positions. Over the past two years, there have been over 25,000 connections between employers and BAT test takers. IIT Alumni who are Bloomberg registered users will be notified directly about the recent testing session, putting your candidacy directly in front of key decision makers at elite firms in the finance world during this crucial time in recruiting season.
Hear from an IIT Stuart Student
"Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) has been a good indication of my skill sets in my professional standing as well as in academic focuses. After taking the test, I got the percentile of my overall score and individual scores and could identify areas of strength and weakness. Carefully reviewing six different sections in BAT, I was able to spend extra hours studying the subject which I got a lower score, to talk about my areas of strength in interviews with confidence, and to analyze my skills for my own benefit."
