Stefan Baluta: Bloomberg Hall of Fame

May 7, 2014 — 

Fifth-year Asper student Stefan Baluta achieved a jaw-dropping score on the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) that rocketed him to the 99th percentile of candidates world-wide and onto North America’s coveted Top Five list. He was the only Canadian student to be listed in the Bloomberg Hall of Fame.

The BAT is a standardized, two-hour online test designed by the Bloomberg Institute in collaboration with leading academics and business professionals to assess the finance knowledge and career aptitude of college and university students. Over 100,000 students have taken the BAT from over 1,000 universities around the world.

Baluta was actually majoring in Actuarial Mathematics – not Finance – when he took the test. “After finding out about the BAT results, I rearranged my schedule to double major in actuarial math and finance.” Baluta says his exposure to finance has opened his mind to a wider range of career options.
