Walsh College dual Master of Business Administration (MBA)/Master of Science in Finance (MSF) student Aaron Dubin of Farmington Hills, Mich., has achieved “Worldwide Top 3” and “Americas Top 5” status on a recent Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) Hall of Fame list.

Dubin’s final score of 730 placed him in the 99th percentile out of more than 200,000 students who have ever taken the highly competitive BAT. Bloomberg L.P., a world leader in financial data analytics and news, hosts the 100-question, two-hour online test that measures students’ aptitudes for careers in finance.

“The BAT Hall of Fame is home to some of the brightest students in the world of finance,” said Gregory Todd, associate professor and chair, Finance, Walsh College. “Aaron’s achievement is tribute to his determination to succeed and the quality of the Finance faculty and curriculum here at Walsh.”

Consisting of eight sections, the BAT includes math, analytical reasoning, analysis of charts and graphs, news analysis, economics, global markets, analysis of financial statements, and investment banking.

The BAT helps students and recent graduates connect with financial employers worldwide. The test was developed in partnership with premier financial institutions and university faculties around the world.

Students who take the BAT uncover their strengths across a range of finance, business, career and personal competencies and gain insight into their suitability for careers in business and finance.

Dubin is a systems engineer at Edward Rose and Sons, Bloomfield Hills, Mich. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, with a minor in Japanese, from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He has achieved several previous monthly BAT Hall of Fame list honors, including a “Worldwide Top 3” in July 2015.
