Financial Modeling Certification LinkedIn Review

Instead of taking the approach of only teaching someone enough to pass an interview and to be viewed as “teachable,” we attempt to train our students to be as close to ready for the job as possible.

LinkedIn Student Review

“Step-by-step, start from scratch” approach

Our philosophy for teaching complex material is that you have to break it down to its most simple elements.

That means building models starting from a blank excel spreadsheet and working step-by-step until completion.

The clear and “straight-to-the-point” instruction, while still remaining comprehensive, is our approach of choice and also why our clients choose us over everyone else.

What Makes Wall Street Prep Better?

A very good question to ask companies offering financial modeling certifications is what specific firms actually hire them to train analysts and associates.

The global investment banks and top institutional firms rely on Wall Street Prep to train their new hires and deliver practical skill development.

There are tremendous stakes involved in M&A deals and leveraged buyouts (LBO) facilitated by private equity firms.

And these are exactly the firms that hire WSP to train their new classes of analysts and associates.

That’s a testament to WSP’s training material and faculty quality and should be a key determinant when choosing a program.

A good question for other providers of financial modeling training is why banks do not bring them in to run classroom training? Believe us, they have tried (unsuccessfully)!
