The Bloomberg Institute is the educational division of Bloomberg LP. With the same transparency for which Bloomberg LP is famous, the Bloomberg Institute has launched the BAT, a standardized test for college and university students.
The Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT)
The BAT is a global, standardized online exam developed in collaboration with financial professionals, recruiters, and academics. The BAT is both comprehensive and objective, covering a range of performance areas including analytical reasoning, global markets, math, economics, news analysis, and other relevant topics. Designed for undergraduates and recent graduates who are interested in a full-time or internship position in finance, the BAT represents an excellent way to get in front of top employers from around the world.
Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC)
BMC is a 6 hour self-paced e-learning course that provides a visual introduction to the financial markets. BMC consists of 4 modules – Economics, Currencies, Fixed Income and Equities – woven together from Bloomberg data, news, analytics and television. The course is available either through the Bloomberg Institute website or on the Bloomberg Terminal at BMC.
The Talent Search
Students’ BAT scores will be maintained anonymously in the Bloomberg Institute Talent Search, where employers can search through student profiles and associated categories including school, year of graduation, region, and competency.
