Bloomberg are launching a new global financial assessment test, and they are inviting IE students who are interested in Finance to undertake the test for free.

In today’s job market, hard-won finance jobs are taken by the most outstanding candidates. It is a valuable opportunity for IE finance students to take the BAT in order to stand out from the crowd and make a positive impact on recruiters and managers at financial institutions.  

In the future there will be a fee for taking the BAT, but currently it is free, and IE students who take the test now will be able to take it again for free when it is fully launched.

The BAT has been designed in conjunction with leading global financial institutions and academics to help outstanding students enter appropriate jobs in all areas of finance. In particular, the BAT will:

1.Allow students to advertise their availability and score to 20,000 global financial employers.

2.Give you an independent assessment of your skills, knowledge and areas for improvement as well as the finance role which might best suit someone with your abilities.

3.Enable you to compare yourself against peers at your institution, in your r! egion and! around the world!
