Ongoing events

Take the BAT - Bloomberg Aptitude Test

Bloomberg aptitude test

Date: Last Friday of every month
Venue: Bloomberg office. Level 27, 1 Blight St, Sydney
Time: 10am–12pm & 3–5pm

The Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) is a 2 hour 100 multiple choice test that assesses knowledge relevant to business, finance, and logical thinking in 8 sections.

It allows you to assess the practical and relevant skills required in the corporate world today, and compare with peers around the world. More importantly, taking the test puts your score at the fingertips over hundreds of employers who use the TalentSearch database to seek potential interns and graduates. When an employer enters search criteria, the system ranks candidates based purely on their test score only. Factors such as name, gender, age and resumes are all withdrawn, and in doing so ensures absolute transparency and equality, allowing those with true talent to stand out based entirely on their merits.

By investing two hours, you pave the way for employers to knock on your door without ever writing another cover letter or spend hours at a networking session.

By investing two hours, at the very least, you see where you stand against the rest of like-minded peers.

Best of all, it is absolutely FREE. And if you are unsatisfied with your result - feel free to repeat the test once a month, for as much as you want to, all for free as well. To date, it has been taken by over 160,000 students across 60 countries in more than 3,500 universities. Join the race today.

Competitions

Win a trip to Dubai with KPMG

KPMG KICC Competition to Dubai

KPMG's International Case Competition (KICC) gives teams of university students the chance to work on a business problem in real time.

To get there, you'll think critically under pressure and challenge yourself to come up with solutions that are innovative and refreshing. To participate, you don't need to be studying a particular subject but you are required to have a keen interest in business and a passion for excellence.

The team that most impresses local business leaders, will find themselves travelling to Dubai on an all-expenses-paid trip, to compete in the international final.

Last year’s Madrid event saw four ANU students come home as global champions! If this sounds like it could be you, visit KPMG's KICC webpage to learn more. Applications close at 5pm on Friday 30 September.
