Monmouth University Leon Hess Business School students have outscored many students from other business schools worldwide in the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT). Over one hundred thousand students from universities all over the world took the Bloomberg Aptitude Test.

"I am very proud of our students" said Don Moliver, dean of the Leon Hess Business School. "The outstanding test results demonstrate how much our students are learning in the classroom as well as in our Financial Markets Lab which allows students to gain valuable hands-on experience analyzing real-time markets and financial data."

The two-hour elective test measures students' knowledge in business and finance. The eight sections of the test include math, analytical reasoning, analysis of charts and graphs, news analysis, economics, global markets, analysis of financial statements, and investment banking.

Bloomberg then analyzes the scores and compares them with students in three geographic areas:  North and South America; Asia and the Pacific; and Europe, Middle East and Africa.

BAT test takers are entered into the Bloomberg Talent Search Database which is available to 20,000 top firms and helps connect Monmouth University students to employment and internship opportunities.

BAT was developed by the Bloomberg Institute in partnership with financial institutions and university faculty around the world. The Bloomberg Institute is the educational division of Bloomberg LP, the New York-based mass media partnership that makes up one-third of the $16 billion global financial data market.
