4 out of the 5 top middle market investment banks choose Wall Street Prep to train their new hires

We are experienced training in the middle market and have developed specific content of particular relevance for middle market transactions:

  • Operating model architecture
  • Working with messy data
  • Private company analysis
  • Middle market M&A processes

"The types of analysis middle market firms perform day-to-day is very different from bulge brackets. So while it’s easier for a training company to deliver generic training it is not a relevant experience for the learner. We partner with our clients customize training so that training is directly relevant to the analyst’s day to day work.”

Michael Stack, Wall Street Prep Senior Instructor
