Two students from Maastricht University School of Business and Economics have been publicly recognised on the monthly Bloomberg Hall of Fame for March 2014, where they are featured next to students from HEC Paris, WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management, Chinese University of Hong Kong, London School of Economics, University of Cambrige or SKEMA Business School.
Casper Stevenaar is a Master in Finance student graduating in 2015 and with 680 out of 800 points has scored on the Top 3 Worldwide.
Florian Pieper will graduate in Business Management this year and has scored 660 points on the BAT, making it to the Top 5 in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) is a global, standardised online exam that the Bloomberg Institute has developed in partnership with premier companies, university faculty, and business professionals around the world. The test is designed for undergraduates and recent graduates who are interested in an entry-level job in the business world.
Bloomberg Institute has tested over 160,000 students in more than 3000 universities and business schools around the world. It recognises top talents on the monthly Hall of Fame.
An Investopedia article writes that “the BAT test gives recruiters and managers a tangible, unbiased perspective that can reveal information about a candidate that often cannot be gleaned from transcripts, resumes, references or even personal interviews.”
